  • Lovingly restored and redecorated rooms. Many personal belongings and items of the Bronte family on display, even the collar of Emily's dog Keeper. Lots of information and very interesting special exhibitions. Staff was friendly and did a great job at keeping the visitor flow inside the house organised. Have visited various times, there's always something new to discover. Very memorable!
  • Another very interesting visit to the Bronte Parsonage Museum. We were able to tour the home of the Brontes and ask any questions of the knowledgeable tour guides as we went along. We arrived during a Bank Holiday Weekend and so we booked in advance and as it happened we were glad we had as the available times were all filled in advance of our arrival on the Saturday. In my opinion a tour of the Parsonage is a must for all readers of the Bronte sisters' novels and you learn so much from taking the time to visit the place where they lived and wrote their novels in the harsh environment of the surrounding moors. I don't think that we will leave it so long next time before we visit the Museum again. I hope this review gives you a flavour of what you can anticipate seeing and doing on a visit to the Museum.
  • Inspiring visit, perfect for lovers of literature. Smaller than you think, some interesting art installations. Won’t take long to get around and so plan to walk around the town and visit some of the shops. The Grave yard next door feels quite spooky with dozens of Ravens. The gift shop has a small selection of books. Very reasonably priced.
  • I'm not a Brontë fan per se but the family story is a fascinating glimpse into a different life than any of us would know. The great thing about this museum is much of it is contemporary with the family many items their own. It puts you close to that lost time. About as close to time travel as we are ever going to get. It's intimacy with the people themselves is quite special too. If you want to take a trip back in time this is a great way to do so and to experience a bit of literary history. Guides are enthusiastic, knowledgeable and approachable, clearly loving their roles. Worth a visit - unless you have no soul.
  • As a dedicated Brontë fan this was a must visit and it didn't disappoint. The rooms are full of information and the museum at the end was really interesting, especially the original letters and writing desks belonging to the sisters. The staff were very helpful, we booked in advance which is probably best as the house is fairly small. Haworth itself is lovely and well worth a visit. Such a beautiful area and a must do for any Brontë or literature fans
