Lovely little museum which, when we visited, had an exhibition of Matisse lithographs beautifully displayed. Marie, the member of staff on duty was very knowledgeable about the museum and the local area.
Very close to the free town car park.

Hi there I spent most of my youth in Cumnock when we grew up in the 60s it was a different place we had the woodroad park which had the outdoor pool I spent all day there and then you had the putting green and the tennis courts we had wonderful times there it was a caravan park as well then there was the Cumnock carnival it was a fab day but as usual the yobs finished it all off the Baird museum I spent many of a day in there playing snooker and billiards we used to watch the experience players playing skittles for money now it is a museum I have been in it and it gave people an in site as too old Cumnock but if you really want to know about Cumnock you have to speak to an old timer they will tell you all the tales of what went on I would need hours to tell you the things that we did but when I return I feel homesick for I love the place

The Keir Hardie room features a large writing desk that was a gift to him from New Zealand. When I first found out this fact I was please to present a New Zealand flag to the museum. I hope it hangs in the room.

With a wonderfully warm and welcoming team, this hidden treasure in Cumnock is a trove of local history, and the place to watch for exhibitions bearing unexpected treats for the future!
While on holiday, we discovered that an exhibition called 'Picasso at Play' was just about to close at The Baird. Thankfully, we managed to see this fantastic insight into the life of an inspirational character on it's final day.
What a treat ! Seeing photographs from his private life, 'at play' with family and friends as well as seeing 3 original Picasso works !
The exhibition was fascinating and the staff showed excellent knowledge of the exhibits.
I would like to give a very personal thank you to Mari for making it extra special for me, by managing to find a copy of the booklet accompanying the exhibition hiding away after our visit and very kindly posting it to me for my 50th birthday.

this is good to visit when the kids want to do something different I could talk to them about the BAIRD INSTITUTE as I lived in Cumnock and brought up in the area

I visited the museum when family were over from Canada and it felt only right to take them to our one and only attraction in the town itself; The Baird Institure (as it's known locally). Small and perfectly formed, it only took us about 30 mins to traverse around the various displays which at the time were based mainly on Keir Hardie and the Covenanters and Cumnock Lace.
The displays were good but I felt the signs weren't the easiest to navigate and i struggled to read them all (short sighted unfortunately). What I did read and see was interesting and it would be good to go back when they change the display.
As usual in Scotland, there is no fee for entry but you are invited to leave a donation which we did as it is only polite.
The opening times are a bit unusual but it is run by the local authority and their ever decreasing budget dictates when it opens.

I had found out about this museum through a newspaper article about my great hero Keir Hardie. I arrived at the museum last Friday and for my entire visit I did not see any guide or museum worker. I had wanted to ask some questions about Keir Hardie, however there was no one to ask. Instead of spending the planned hour in the museum I left after 15 minutes in absolute disgust.
I had hoped to write a positive review and was looking forward to my planned visit. However my view of anyone wanting to visit is go and have a look by all means, but DO NOT expect any sort or visitor interaction, greeting, or even someone to ask where the toilet is!!!!
I am not sure who runs this place, probably the council and I would ask them to get their act together!!!
All together this was a disappointing experience!!!!!!!!!

My friends visited the museum to see the items which once belonged to Keir Hardie as we are members of the Keir Hardie Society. The items were once in his home "Lochnorris" and donated to the museum. The layout of the items was very easy to negotiate and see. The notices were very clear and gave an insight to Keir Hardie that even the members were unaware of. Two of our party have a great deal of knowledge about Keir Hardie's life, and they were very impressed with the exhibition.The Baird Institute is a beautiful building, opened in March 1891.

This museum is closed on a Wednesday so we had to return on Thursday and were very pleased that we had made the effort. The Keir Hardie room brought the man to life for me, and the Covenanters exhibition with a copy of the Peden mask was moving. All together a great wee museum.

Thanks to the ever increasing cut backs the Baird Institute has strange opening hours - Thursday to Saturday only as I discovered a few Wednesday's back. Car parking isn't bad on the nearby streets and the bus station is right next to it - Auchinleck is the nearest station nowadays. Quite a few restaurants nearby, useful as the museum doesn't have a cafe, but it does have a toilet. The inside of the building is freshly painted but here and their posters etc have been removed - together with the paintwork.

It's a fine Scottish-style building as constructed with a donation from local businessman Mr Baird, a photograph of whom welcomes you in. The Keir Hardy Room is interesting and creates a direct link with the days of deep mining, long gone with only the 'A' Frame at Auchinleck left over. The mining history is well covered however the laminated sheet guide was missing so the display case contents were less than fully interpreted.

The Covenanting section was particularly interesting with the mask of 'Prophet Peden' the Covenanter minister, the Covenanter Flag used at the Battle of Drumclog, etc. The main gallery was taken up with a very well laid out WWI exhibition - evidence of a lot of effort in this very quite place - judging from the Visitor's Book that is.

A research room is present which just has two computers and a big desk. I was hoping to find out about Loch Norris - the old name for Dumfries House, but only one person was present who might have been a member of staff and he was rather involved with interpreting the WWI exhibition - with great erudition.

Four display cases contained exhibits relating to the history of the town - nice to see the Old and New Cumnock Quoiting prize as this sport has all but died out in Scotland.

This used to be a dynamic and busy wee museum - shame that it is going through a quiet period - let's hope that quiet doesn't become closed! Don't let the simply awful corporate branded East Ayrshire signs put you off - drop in and enjoy.
