For a wheelchair-user, the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway (near Ayr) is a very special place indeed.
The actual museum is housed in a very recently purpose-built building (Burns Cottage itself though, was built a good few years before wheelchair accessibility was even a thing).
Accessible parking and a level drop-off point, are located very close to the main entrance of the museum building (where there is a special , electrically-controlled door just for wheelchair-users – simply push the low-level button).
There is a specially-adapted wheelchair accessible toilet on your left – just after the gift shop within the museum building (and there is also another accessible toilet in the Education Pavilion at Burns Cottage).
The Robert Burns Birthplace Museum (including Burns Cottage) is a National Trust for Scotland property – so there is free entry for National Trust for Scotland members.
A delightful cafe at the rear of the building, serves great food, snacks and hot/cold drinks. The cafe has floor-to-ceiling windows – which allow parents to enjoy a coffee while keeping an eye on their children playing in the childrens’ playpark to the rear of the building (you don’t have to pay just to use the cafe, and as the playpark is enclosed in the private gardens to the rear of the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum building, this is a fantastic place for families).
In between the modern museum building and Burns Cottage (a good few hundred metres – all paved, and all level), is the Poets Path, which is lined with sculptures depicting Burns-related themes.
See the Wheelchair Accessible Ayr Guide for details of other wheelchair accessible attractions, restaurants and hotels in Alloway and Ayr.
