Despite their initial protestations, the children really enjoyed the house! A great little visit to break up the day!
Fascinating tale of the great doctor. Very well done. An amazing story of an amazing man.
Fascinating to learn about one of history's greatest and most influential people.
The Samuel Johnson house is a great little museum - a lovely atmosphere and a warm welcome.
Very interesting house. There is so much history about these gentlemen who lived in the Midlands that I hadn't got any idea how important in history they were. The information is explained very well.
I would thoroughly recommend the tour to anyone with an interest in the genius that is Samuel Johnson.
I found the museum to be fun and entertaining. I would recommend this place to my friends.
A very enjoyable visit to Dr Johnson's Birthplace museum. It is so important to preserve historical properties such as this!
This was a really interesting place to visit! There was so much information that one needs to return to consolidate. It was beautifully organised and the video made an excellent introduction.
Loved the story and the interactive ways of introducing Samuel Johnson's work. Enjoyable.
absolutely brilliant place. i live in lichfield and me and my daughter visit nearly every month. there's always something going on for children which is excellent and fun
This is an amazing venue! I am amazed that this place is free and it is wonderfully interactive. I sincerely hope that I get chance to come here many more times. An absolute delight. My sister loved it, as did I!
An excellent, well chosen collection at Cure in Lichfield. Always considered.
Well worth a visit. A trip back in time, plus an informative insight into the life and times of Samuel Johnson.
really enjoyable visit - fantastic to see a first edition of Johnson's dictionary. If you have a spare hour would definitely recommend a look. A surprisingly large exhibition.
Absolutely wonderful museum! Artefacts beautifully displayed and commentaries very interesting. We were greeted warmly at reception and the guide was very knowledgeable. The video was excellent as well.
To all literary minded people - a must; and to others, do not walk past! The house is a wonderful display of the past and very atmospheric.
The museum is excellent, well laid out and staff are very knowledgeable. Thank you!
We enjoyed the quizzes and they are very suitable for children. Also we liked dressing up. It was fun - we would definitely come back again!
A fantastic house to visit. There are so many artefacts and bits of information to absorb, this would normally be quite tiring but in Johnson's house, everything is displayed in an interesting and easy to see fashion.
Extremely interesting and we received an excellent welcome. Lots of information, and an excellent bookshop. Highly recommended.
Fascinating insight into the life and times of Johnson. So much more than just seeing his dictionary. Well worth a visit.
A great place for all the family. My six year old and three year old really enjoyed exploring the rooms, made even more fun by the 'finding the cats' activity. They also enjoyed dressing up!
An excellent experience, very informative! This museum should be commended for its accessibility and attention to detail.
