Lovley Museum well worth the visit for the history and architecture of this Georgian property. Well laid out and very informative. Was very surprised to read in a quite book we have title London by tube which mentions this museum that the property was to be demolished in 1923 but was saved by 3 members of the Dickens fellowship. If it was not for them the history of this place would have been lost. Assests like these are a national treasure and government should provide security and safe keeping for future generations to enjoy. It's part of the public realm.

This was an enlightening experience for us to be able to visit the home of one of Britain's greatest writers. The rooms are laid out as they would have been in Dickens' time there and it is easy to feel the family's presence there. The volunteers there are friendly and informative and pleased to be of help in describing life with the Dickens. Charles Dickens produced a lot of his major works here and it's possible to see and read pages of his actual hand written work. A worthwhile visit in our opinion.

Made my first visit to the museum last week with my nephew - who has been there more than once - and it did not disappoint. The house is well preserved, and the rooms are all filled with fascinating memorabilia. The staff made us feel welcome, and were helpful and informative. Recommended.

A sweet little museum about Charles Dickens’s, his work, his family and friends with a glimpse into the Victorian era. It’s divided into 4 floors via a staircase. It has a basements here one can see the kitchen and the laundry as well as the wine cellar. On the ground floor one can see the dinning room, the morning room (including the tickets office and the cafe). As one goes up the floors, bedrooms and reading rooms can be found. Top floor has the children’s room. There are toilets spread across the floors from the 1st the third and they’re very clean and tidy. On the ground floor there’s a cafe and a gorgeous courtyard. Staff could be more welcoming and helpful. It’s not disabled accessible. Overall a positive experience

Great artifacts and nice gift shop. But too dark to see anything clearly. And the staff feel more like guards than guides: you don't feel like you can ask them things.
