The Charles Dickens Museum in Westminster is unveiling a new brand new exhibition, showcasing the famous author’s little known passion for science.
Curators Adelene Buckland and Frankie Kubicki walk London Live round their various exhibits, such as a theatrical device used for ghostly illusions, a telescope and a 'magic lantern'.
Dickens felt very strongly about the importance of science and wanted children to get excited about the subject.
He occasionally collaborated with leading contemporary scientists and used a number of theories as the basis for his storylines.
The exhibition opens on 24th May and continues until 11th November.
