We knew of the Red House from many years ago when the children were little - our lower middle class attempt to interest them in heritage and culture. Well, something must have clicked, albeit years later, as here I was again with the first son, now 28. I've given up any hope that the prodigal one will return to his... More

Red House has that timeless feel about it. It brings to life the history of the Taylor family and how they lived. I always feel as though it is still a welcoming home, thanks to the sensitive way it has been furnished and preserved. I could almost imagine living there myself. Informative, tranquil and elegant, well worth a visit.

I took my children who are 5, 9, 12yrs one cold Sunday afternoon. They all really enjoyed the visit which caters for all ages. My youngest liked the small park, spotting the modern items placed in each room (they all received a chocolate each for getting them right) and watching squirrels run around the neat gardens. My eldest two spent... More

A charming home of a mill owning family - modest but prosperous middle class, and whose daughter was a close friend of Charlotte Bronte. The museum shop had several copies of her novel "Shirley" and I discovered that Red House was in the book under the name "Briarmains", as were her friends also under another name. Very friendly museum staff... More

I visited the museum as part of a dealmonster deal with Oakwell Hall. Its a lovely little museum with an activity room for children. They had Halloween activities for children whilst we were there and a spooky quiz so my 6 year old son loved it too. Staff were lovely. Would recommend this museum.

Well worth a visit: a small but perfect house. The exhibition was really engaging for anyone interested in Charlotte Bronte and her town remarkable friends: all amazing women. Loved the gardens as well and enjoyed a cuppa in the cafe.

we came here after getting a joint ticket with Oakwell Hall, which is. 5 minute drive away. Its not worth coming on its own as its quite small. However the place is well laid out, with life like models in some of the rooms. You are given a small guide to explain more as you go around. Not much to... More

Often Charlotte Bronte slept here, and played with her friends Mary Taylor and Ellen Nussey. This middle class family house, which had been in the Taylor family since 1660, is displayed as it was in the mid-1830s. Outside are recreated nineteenth century gardens while a display in the Barn shows the very different lives experienced by Charlotte, Ellen and Mary... More

Its a favorite of mine in honesty. The house has strong Bronte connections but the Taylor family who owned it are fascinating. The 1830's garden is delightful and you can now get a cup of tea or coffee which is great.
