Dickens Discovery room

The Dickens Room at The Guildhall MuseumA special display dedicated to the great author is housed in the museum's grade two listed Conservancy Board Building.

The Dickens Discovery Room was designed by Jasper Jacob Associates, one of Britain's most respected museum design companies.

These purpose-built displays include original objects, as well as text and graphic panels, outlining Dickens' links with Medway. A multilingual touchscreen in six languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Hungarian and Japanese) highlights other sites of Dickensian interest. There is also a small audio-visual theatre, which can accommodate 16 people, showing a short film about the author.

Entrance to the display and film theatre is free.
