We thoroughly enjoyed the museum as it gave us a real feel for the young Dickens and the life of perhaps the first genuine world wide celebrity. You could just picture the gatherings that must have took place and how happy in his marriage he was early on. Better than expected and that's always a plus.

The Victorian town house in Doughty Street of the Bloomsbury neighborhood is undistinguished from its brick-fronted neighbors but within its walls a young Charles Dickens wrote his early and much-beloved works. There is a strange thrill to stand in the study or the library where Oliver Twist and others first came to be. For tourists without any great acquaintance with or affection for his novels, Dickens's dwelling will be of very limited interest except as a thoughtfully restored example of middle class living in nineteenth century London: all five levels from scullery to attic and the small yard are open for your exploration. For Dickens fans, a must.

Plenty to see. Well laid out. Easy to follow with headphones. Also interesting exhibition covering Dickens' interest in scientific findings.

The house is a situated close to Chancery Lane tube station and is an excellent window into the life of this famous writer. There are many artefacts from his time staying in this beautifully preserved house. Many original documents and furniture really brings to life the production of so many of his books. This is not a large house , but really well worth a visit when in London.

This was a place that was well worth the entrance fee. Staff were friendly and the museum itself was rich in history and information. A gem off the beaten track
