Book & Gift Shop

‘Good to Go’

We have added hand sanitising stations at the entrance and next to our till area. We also have a Perspex screen in front of the till for extra protection. As the shop is small, we may limit numbers to assist social distancing. Face coverings are recommended.



The Museum shop has a very special history, based in the very same room that Johnson’s parents ran their bookshop business from since 1708. Today the shop is a second hand bookshop covering all subjects, and all proceeds support the Birthplace. A wide range of gifts and souvenirs includes new books on Johnson and Lichfield, original engraved prints and maps, scarves and jewellery and gift bags.
