Visit the Granary used for the storing of barley in Burns' day. Nowadays inside you can revisit the time with an audio visualo presentation of Burns' life at Ellisland.

In the Granary is also a display of farming tools and implements similar to those used in the time of Burns.

The Dumfries Burns Club's extensive Burns Library is on display in the large bookcases. Special arrangements may be made for research access . The collection of books in the desk type display case is the complete set of copies of Burns' manuscripts collected by Peter Westwood.

The other section of the case houses a display of coins and tokens used in Burns lifetime when boddles and groats mixed with pennies.
