Time Out says

A glimpse of Victorian London in the home of one of England's greatest authors.

The museum, library and headquarters of the Dickens Fellowship – and the house where Dickens lived from 1837-39 – allows visitors a glimpse of how the writer worked and indeed how people's lived in Victorian London. A mixture of reconstructed rooms and gallery space, the museum features original Victorian furniture and fittings, refurbished attics and kitchens and an education centre at 49 Doughty Street. Visitors are taken back in time as they explore and discover Dickens's life through displays of his personal belongings, paintings and his writing. The museum runs regular events such as costumed tours and candlelit late-openings.
