The Roald Dahl Museum is a great little family Museum, situated in Great Missenden, the Buckinghamshire village where Roald Dahl lived and wrote for 36 years.
The Museum, aimed at 6 to 12 year olds, features three hands-on galleries and is home to the Roald Dahl archive. Boy gallery looks at Roald Dahl's school days while Solo gallery houses his original Writing Hut. The Story Centre puts your imagination centre-stage with fantabulous Roald Dahl workshops and events to inspire the writer in you.
As well as three hands-on galleries you can enjoy free drop-in crafts every day (closed most Mondays), and free Roald Dahl storytelling at weekends and during the Buckinghamshire school holidays.
Additionally we run a packed programme of fun and lively Roald Dahl themed workshops that are pre-bookable. Some of these incur a small charge; take a look at our What's On pages for full listings. These events can be booked online or by calling 01494 892192.
Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity receives support from The Big Feastival and other charitable partners including Chipmunks, a leading children's footwear brand and Explore Learning, providers of Maths and English tuition.
