Lonely Planet review
A worthwhile Burns exhibition in an old mill on the banks of the River Nith. It tells the story of the poet and Dumfries in the 1790s. The optional audiovisual presentations give more background on Dumfries, and explain the exhibition's contents.
There are more Burns-related sights scattered throughout town; you'll find Robert Burns' mausoleum in the graveyard at St Michael's Kirk , with a grisly account of his reburial on the information panel. At the top of High St is a statue of the bard.
