Brontë Parsonage Museum

Brontë Parsonage Museum

About

Set in the picturesque village of Haworth in West Yorkshire, Haworth Parsonage was the home of the Brontë family from 1820 to 1861 and the place where Charlotte Brontë wrote Jane Eyre, Emily Brontë wrote Wuthering Heights and Anne Brontë wrote The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.

Now the Brontë Parsonage Museum, it houses the world’s largest collection of Brontë furniture, clothes and personal possessions and offers an inspirational and evocative experience for people of all ages.

Items on display in the intimate historic rooms include letters, notebooks and household artefacts. Highlights include Emily’s paint box, Charlotte’s sewing box, pebbles collected by Anne, a comb used by Emily and the bonnet worn by Charlotte on her wedding day. Visitors are always fascinated to see how tiny the sisters’ handwriting was, with the ‘Little Books’ being a favourite exhibit for many.

The Museum welcomes approximately 70,000 visitors from across the world each year and presents a regularly changing programme of exhibitions, arts events and family activities. It runs successful learning and outreach programmes and has been in the headlines recently, thanks to the high-profile acquisition of manuscripts, letters and printed material saved for the nation by a campaign led by the Friends of the National Libraries.
