Less famous than its Haworth competitor this site is a must visit for anyone interested in the Brontes - or the social history of milling in the West Riding. The house is pretty much as it was during the Victorian era with sympathetic displays and limited information on the Bronte connection. The gardens are lovely too - and there is... More

The Bronte expo is great and watch out for events in the hay loft. Not a huge place but worth visiting and getting a feel of the local history.

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.
