Fun for all the family


The Museum is bustling during the school holidays and visitors can enjoy a range of activities for all the family. Have a go at our Easter trail, raid our dressing up box, or get your hands on some history!

Easter Talks and Walks
Throughout the Easter holidays we will be offering twenty-minute talks at 2pm. These talks will briefly explore different aspects of the Brontë story, from life and death in Haworth to the Brontës’ early lives and the imaginary worlds they created as children. On Wednesday 8 and 15 April, instead of the talks we will be leading guided walks up onto Penistone Hill (weather allowing) to get a sense of the landscape which was so inspirational to the whole family.

All talks and guided walks are free of charge to Museum visitors.

Wednesday 8 April, 11am-4pm
Wild Wednesday! Painting Portraits

All the Brontës tried their hand at painting portraits when they were young, either of each other or of the glamorous heroes of
their imagination. Helen Graham, the heroine of Anne Brontë’s great novel, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, is actually a professional portrait painter, very unusual for a woman of that time. Join local artist Rachel Lee at an easel in the Parsonage and have a go yourself at trying to capture someone’s likeness!
Free with admission to the Museum.

Wednesday 15 April, 11am-4pm
Wild Wednesday! A Picture on a Pebble

Anne Brontë loved the sea. The first time she set eyes on it was when she was working as a governess in Scarborough. She picked up some pebbles as souvenirs and we still have them in our collection. Join us to paint your own sea-themed picture on a pebble and take it home as your souvenir.
Free with admission to the Museum.
