Learning at the Charles Dickens Museum

Curating Charles Dickens

In this engaging workshop, pupils learn to handle, identify and understand objects from the past, using actual artefacts from the Museum’s archive collection. Pupils will investigate what these objects tell us about people’s lives during the Victorian era, and about the life of Charles Dickens and his family when they lived here in Doughty Street – with clear links drawn between the objects handled in the workshop and those objects the pupils will see and experience during their guided tour of the museum house.
