School trip sessions at the Roald Dahl Museum.
We’re home to one of the most complete literary archives – of one of the world’s greatest children’s writers, Roald Dahl!
A school trip to our great little Museum in Buckinghamshire will support your pupils’s literacy learning. Our Museum is the perfect place to see the writing process in action by one of its masters. Pupils will discover how they can use the same techniques themselves and find out more about Roald Dahl’s life while exploring our fun, interactive galleries.
Our aim is for your visit to us to be HANDS-ON, INVESTIGATIVE and EXCITING. Our schools’ programme is delivered by our experienced Learning Team. All of our team hold an Enhanced DBS clearance and regularly review and update their professional skills.
We offer two types of sessions. Our extended, 180 minute sessions allow children to get hands-on with Roald Dahl’s drafts and letters from our archive in an active and fun way. Our 90 minute sessions include an interactive, closer look at Roald Dahl’s Writing Hut.
Both types are based around a key literacy area which is the focus throughout your visit.
You can combine all our sessions with our self-guided Village Trail which will allow you to explore Great Missenden and its connections with Roald Dahl.
We do have some availibility for small, self-led group books at certain times. For more information see our Group Bookings page.
