Relatively unknown and hidden gem of a museum with eager and knowledgeable docents ready to answer any and all questions about Dickens' life, writing and relationships and capable of drawing your interest to pertinent documents and objects of his. The two houses comprising the museum contain numerous items, pictures and information and art related to his life in London and is thoroughly and well presented. There are now exhibit spaces for current artworks which relate to Dickens which change from time to time and there is a well outfitted shop as well as a lovely cafe with a fine cream tea and other goodies, somewhat representational of the food of the period and well as tasty and current. For about the same price as two admissions you can become a member for a year, allowing you to enter with a guest an unlimited number of times, so that is a great deal.

Interesting museum in the house where Dickens and his family lived for several years. Stocked with some of his manuscripts, letters and furniture including his armchair and writing desk where he wrote some of his books. House had four floors and a basement exhibition and has lift access to the third floor. Adult cost is £9.50 with Senior/Student price £7.50.

You must be a fan to really enjoy this narrow house Dickens lived in during his rise to literary prominence. There are artifacts such as letters, painted portraits and prints that unfortunately are very hard to read in the dim lighting of the museum, as well as pieces of furniture that belonged to the author. An audio tour describes his life. A very private man, there are some mysteries to be explored. The whole house from basement to third floor bedrooms are on view with a gift shop and additional museum space in the adjacent townhouse.

The place is nice and very informative and the garden café is a must if you are there. There is also a reading area where you can stop and enjoy some of works. The employees feel like guards, although it might also be because the place is rather small so you bump into them all the time.

What a fantastic museum! It really captures the world of Dickens. It’s a lot larger than you’d think and you could easily lose a few hours here. I’d recommend to go on a tour if available. It felt like you really disappeared into the world of Dickens. Well worth visiting this hidden gem.
