Full of information about Ficjens writings and his inspiration for the books. An interesting place for literary buffs.

I popped into the museum simply to kill a little time, but I ended up staying there for over an hour. The staff were very well informed and very enthusiastic about Dickens. They were eager to share their love of the author

There's obviously a lot of history here and so worth the visit if in Broadstairs. If you look at everything and take your time, I think an hour or hour and a half you will see it all.

A bit of a thin collection, but still a nice walk through an old house. A few interesting displays, but at base, you could miss it if hurried.
