Donate an object

Many items on display at the Charles Dickens Birthplace Museum came to be in our collections thanks to generous donations from members of the public. These items help us to keep the story of Dickens’ early days in the city available to view, for city residents and visitors alike.

In fact, some of our most popular items actually came from public donations.

Visit the Portsmouth Museums site for information on our Charles Dickens collection.

If you have an item to donate, take a read through our procedure information page, which details the steps involved and the contact details for you to get in touch.
