Festive closures

John Muir’s Birthplace will be closed from 25th December 2023 to 2nd January 2024 for a festive break. We are open up until Christmas Eve for all your last minute Christmas shopping needs. If you are planning on visiting us on the 24th please note that we’ll be closing at 4pm rather than our usual 5pm.

We are looking forward to welcoming you all back to the museum on the 3rd of January!

We want to say a huge thank you to all our visitors that made this year so special – John Muir Way walkers, local primary schools doing their John Muir Awards, pilgrims from the US, and all the local families who pop in for a nosey (and sometimes just to use the loo)!

Some of our highlights from this year are:

Who knows what 2024 has in store? In the meantime thank you for all your continued support, and we hope you all have a peaceful winter break.
