Jane Austen's House Museum in Chawton

Jane Austen's House Museum is a small private museum in the village of Chawton near Alton in Hampshire.

Jane Austen's House Museum was established in 1947 and is owned and run by the Jane Austen Memorial Trust, a registered charity which has as its objects "the advancement of education and in particular the study of English literature, especially the works of Jane Austen."[1]

The Museum's collection includes eight music books owned by Jane Austen.[2]
