Dickens Museum to close during bicentenary


The Dickens House and Museum in London, which holds so much Dickensian material, celebrates the bicentenary of the author's birth but is causing uproar among enthusiasts by closing from April to December this year for building work.

The museum's director Dr Florian Schweizer, explains the reasons for the closure and the great-great-great granddaughter of Dickens and patron of the House and Museum, Lucinda Hawksley, expresses her anger at the move.
