About Jane Austen's House

Moving & Shaking

We are currently moving a few displays around in the Museum with the aim of improving the visitor experience. We will keep disruption to a minimum but please forgive us for any disruption at this time.

The turquoise ring and quilt will be OFF DISPLAY until early or mid next week. Very likely back on display in a new case by Wednesday 17th September.


Poet in Residence for Jane Austen's House Museum

We are pleased to announce that Maura Dooley has been appointed as a poet in residence for Jane Austen's House Museum.

Maura, who brings a wealth of experience as a published poet and tutor to the Museum will spend about a day a week at the Museum throughout the coming months and will organise workshops, readings and other poetry inspired activity while also working on her own poetry.

Details of workshops can be found on our 'What's On' page.



The Museum is an independent Museum which receives no regular funding. We need to raise funds for future acquisitions and to support our Education work. By giving via the link below you will be helping to support our work for future generations.
