Brontë Parsonage Museum
Founded in 1893, the Brontë Society collects and exhibits material relating to the Brontës’ lives and works and shares it with the widest possible audience through display, online access, reader appointments and a lifelong learning programme.
Haworth Parsonage, home of the Brontë family from 1820 to 1861, was gifted to the Brontë Society in 1928. Now the Brontë Parsonage Museum, it houses the world’s largest collection of Brontë material and inspires scholars, writers and artists.
The Museum presents a regularly changing programme of exhibitions, contemporary arts events and family activities and offers an inspirational and evocative experience for people of all ages.
The Brontë Society is celebrating the bicentenary of the birth of Charlotte Brontë throughout 2016.
