Festive opening hours

With all the snow and the Christmas lights we are feeling very festive here at John Muir’s Birthplace.

We are pleased to be open from now until 1pm on Christmas Eve. We will then close for the festive season and reopen on Wednesday 5th January. 1pm is earlier than our usual Saturday closing time so do be aware of this if you’re planning on doing some last-minute Christmas shopping with us!

We’ll be back to our usual winter hours from January 4th – open Wed – Sat 10am – 5pm (last entry 4.30pm) and Sun 1pm – 5pm (last entry 4.30pm). We are closed on Monday and Tuesday. Feel free to come in and shelter from the blasting Janwar’ win‘ with our exhibition on John Muir and Robert Burns in the back room. We’ve also got a great programme of crafts running through the winter for our wee visitors, and a reference library set up to keep our big visitors entertained.
