This place is fusty, musty and needs a complete renovation to bring it up to the standard one expects nowadays from small museums. Random selection of items vaguely related to Dickens and Victorian times. Uninspiring to say the least.

Very interesting museum in a beautiful old building on the sea front at Broadstairs. Lots of information about Dickens that we didn't know. We will definitely visit again.

If you are in the area, this is a Must to do. Just be able to share this place with one of the most brilliant writers. We recommend you with absolute no hesitation.

Well with a visit for all aficionados of Dickens and Victoriana alike. The house is quaint and brimmed full of intriguing items. Also must mention the charming and helpful gentleman who went to great trouble to enlighten us on our visit.
