Curator condition checks Dickens's suit

The Charles Dickens Museum is an independent museum and private charity. We receive no government funding and therefore rely on the generosity and goodwill of those who support us. 

Support can range from one off donations, joining our Friends programme or volunteering your time here at the Museum.  All types of support are valued and help us realise a wide variety of projects and activities. 


Contributions can be made at the Museum during your visit or at any time online. Find out more.
