Located in picturesque Rozelle Park, Ayr, Rozelle House Museum and Galleries displays objects, artefacts and works of art from the South Ayrshire Council collections, as well as offering a changing programme of exhibitions, events and activities.

Rozelle House is home to Scottish Artist Alexander Goudie’s magnificent series of paintings inspired by Robert Burns’ famous poem ‘Tam o’ Shanter’. This narrative cycle of 54 paintings was purchased by South Ayrshire Council with funding provided by the T.B. Hunter Charitable Trust, The Fraser Foundation and the Souter Foundation, and they are now part of our permanent collection. A selection of these works is on display all year; you can see all 54 works online on our Museums at home page.

Rozelle House also hosts the Ayrshire Yeomanry Museum, a small exhibition that tells the story of their history through a display of their archives, artefacts and original costume. View their history.
