The Writers' Museum in Edinburgh, Scotland
Tucked away in a close adjacent to Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, this small museum housed in a building from 1622 celebrates three legendary Scottish writers: Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott, and Robert Louis Stevenson. The Writers’ Museum, which operates out of the early 17th-century Lady Stair’s House in Lady Stair’s Close, honors the lives and legacies of these three important men.
The Writers’ Museum is a free Edinburgh institution that conserves and exhibits rare books, manuscripts, portraits, and personal items belonging to the beloved 18th-century poet Burns; the 18th and 19th-century poet, novelist, and historian Scott; and 19th-century novelist Stevenson, famous for Treasure Island and The Curious Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
The Writers’ Museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The collections are only accessible by climbing a narrow flight of stairs, and since the museum is located in a 500-year-old building, there is no elevator or ramp available.
