Visiting with your family

A visit to the Museum includes a free family trail for each child. Suitable for children between 4 and 12 years, the trail takes children on a journey of discovery through No. 48 Doughty Street, where Dickens once lived with his wife and young family.

Exploration of our basement reveals our wonderful Victorian kitchen, full of period and replica items you can interact with. Try your hand at grinding coffee and look out for our resident hedgehog, Bill Spikes!

There are costumes for dressing up in both the kitchen and the attic to give a flavour of what life was like upstairs and down. There is even a beautiful Victorian toy theatre in our timeline room where you can put on your own play.


Activities and events

There are a whole range of exciting activities at the Museum. From butter churning to costumed tours and family activity days over the holidays!
