London: Dickens Museum closed for repairs in centennial year? Oh, no!

Can you believe that the Charles Dickens Museum on Doughty Street is closing for repairs from April – December 2012 during the Bicentennial Year of the author’s birth?

Director Florian Schweizer says, “maybe it’s not such a bad moment to do the renovations.”

“While in any other year our closure might have been a problem we feel quite confidently that we’ve created such a strong program of events in and around London and around the country that for that short period the public probably won’t miss us too much.”

Dickens’ lovers including his many descendants are understandably irate. Comments?
