Not-So-Great Expectations for the Charles Dickens Museum


The Charles Dickens Museum, located in his former house at 48 Doughty Street, London, could close down permanently due to a lack of visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been open since 1925.

This, according to an article in today's New York Times by Nina Siegal. The Museum thinks it can hang on until September. Many other museums face the same fate. 

It looks to me like their online store is still open, and it is filled with fantastic Dickens gifts. Personally, I love the Reading Ticket keyring.

You can also learn about donating to the museum here.  

Literary Locations will donate $1.00 to the Museum for every Dickens sticker we sell in May. Like all our stickers, it is beautifully illustrated by Isabella Bannerman, removable, and fits nicely on a phone or computer.
