Collections and stories

The Charles Dickens’ Birthplace is a fascinating building where you can see the first home of this now-venerated author. However, the story doesn’t start and end there. We have a host of collection items, a wealth of personal insights from those who work at the museum, and a host of interactive activities to help bring the stories to life.

Here you will find all this and more; from a history of the building to our personal recommendations and even a trail to follow across the city, to make learning about Dickens a fun and rewarding experience.
