  • As a lover of architecture,i'm so glad that Dr Johnsons house has been preserved. That said,the contents of the house are quite sparse and there is nothing evocative of past. It is like a beautiful sh...  more »

  • What a thrill to see the garret where Dr Johnson compiled his Dictionary. A lovely 4 storey house with kind stewards, fascinating stories and a quiet atmosphere leaving you free to investigate and wonder by yourself. Don't miss the amazing mobile panels which enabled one floor to be converted into two separate rooms and a hallway. Lots to look at and enjoy, stories to read, about Johnson and his world and the history of the museum. Small but very interesting range of books, cards, stationery etc in the museum shop. Toilet available in the basement (steep stairs). Well worth a visit. Three cheers for the London Volunteer Fire Service who battled to save the house during the Blitz; a great story of community co-operation as well.
  • What an absolute delight, just locating this building you have to walk down narrow streets and courts, the atmosphere you get is incredible. You get a real feel of the history of the area, and before you reach the building you are given a real treat with the memorial statue of Johnson's cat. The house itself is a real treat filled with lots of information about this great man. Not to the same standards of a mainstream musuem but still a real treat.
