Charles Dickens' Birthplace Museum
The furniture, ceramics, glass, household objects and decorations faithfully recreated the Regency style which Charles's parents would have favoured, although their actual possessions have long since been dispersed.
There are 3 furnished rooms: the parlour, the dining room and the bedroom where Charles was born. The exhibition room features a display on Charles Dickens and Portsmouth, as well as a small collection of memorabilia: the couch on which he died at his house in Kent, together with his snuff box, inkwell and paper knife, poignant reminders of an author celebrated for his prodigious talents and creative output.
Volunteers will be in costume every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month and The Dickens Fellowship are also doing readings at 3pm on the first Sunday of every month. Please contact the museum prior to visiting to confirm these events are taking place.
