  • A little gem of a museum, tucked away just off Fleet Street. Plenty of original features , interesting exhibits.
  • Redolent of an age of pen and ink when Dr Johnson and his three assistants toiled over 9 years to assemble not the first but one of the. most comprehensive dictionaries of the English language. a small back court oasis of charm dignity and learning almost completely intact from a bygone age. Even the urchin proof front door with woman forged security chain is original. An absolute delight for lovers of history, the English language and the anecdotes, quotations and writings of the great man and his travelling companion/ biographer Boswell. Do not miss this when in London.
