The Samuel Johnson Birthplace Museum offers fun and inspiring primary visits and outreach sessions covering literacy, history and more. Meet Kitty and Lucy the family servants, find out how books are made with Michael Johnson, handle original objects, dress up as a Georgian, join Hodge's Alphabet Hunt and make your own Dictionary! You could also make a day of it in historic Lichfield by combining a visit to us with Erasmus Darwin House. We also offer a popular, hands-on Language Change session for KS5.
