The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre

What we offer

School visit to the Roald Dahl Museum

School trip sessions at the Roald Dahl Museum.

Learn from Roald Dahl, master storyteller 

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.

90 minute and 180 minute sessions

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.

All sessions include:

  • Time exploring the Museum’s galleries with our 40 interactive installations.
  • Small group activities working with materials from the Roald Dahl archive.  
  • Discovering more about Roald Dahl’s life.

Explore sessions for years 2 to 4

Explore sessions for years 5 to 8

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. 

Small group bookings

We do have some availibility for small, self-led group books at certain times. For more information see our Group Bookings page.
