Roald Dahl Museum closure

The Museum is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Online Shop update: We are delighted to have re-opened our online shop! Your purchase directly supports The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre, helping us to preserve Roald Dahl's archive for everyone. Please note, deliveries may take a little longer than usual due to staffing and postage factors as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you!

Roald Dahl Museum closure

The Roald Dahl Museum is closed for the foreseeable future due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are working hard to get back to normal as soon as possible.


If you have oustanding tickets for general admission and events, you will have been contacted by email to discuss your options.

If you have a 12 month general admission ticket, we’ll add the number of weeks of closure to the expiry date, so you won’t miss out on your Roald Dahl Museum fix. Phew!

How you can help us

We appreciate everyone’s wonderful support at this challenging time. We rely on our ticket income to survive, so this period of unplanned closure represents a real challenge for many museums and galleries, including ours.

If you’re able to, please support us by planning to visit us later in the year or purchasing from our online shop. This will help keep us up and running, and help us to continue to preserve Roald Dahl’s archive for everyone. We really do appreciate it.

If there are any other ways you’d be able to help, please do get in touch by emailing us at
