Phizz-whizzing news! The Museum will be re-opening on Thursday 10 September. Tickets will go on sale on Thursday 27 August. We are currently booking up to Thursday 22 October. Tickets for later dates will be released nearer the time.
Please book your tickets in advance online; it won’t be possible to buy tickets on the door.
When we reopen, every visit will be a NEW way to experience and enjoy the Roald Dahl Museum safely with your family. All visits will be in the form of guided visits, exclusive to you and your bubble, led by an expert guide. Our tours are great for anyone aged 5 to 105!
Our expert guides will show you some of the highlights of the Museum, as well as some spaces and secrets not usually seen by the public. You’ll take part in some hands-free interactive activities, ask all the Roald Dahl questions you can think of to your guide and see some close-up treasures from our amazing archive. At the end you’ll all get an activity pack to take home so you can enjoy even more Museum activities. The best part is that it will only be your group and tour guide in each of the Museum’s gallery spaces at any time, with the guide at an appropriate distance, of course.
Guided visits will be running every half an hour from 10am to 4pm, and will take about 1 hour 15 minutes. From 10 September, these will take place from Thursday to Sunday, but we will review this if enough people want to book.
The price of our tours is the same as standard entry would be: £7.40 adults, £4.90 children and concessions, under 5s free.
For more information see our Re-opening FAQs.
Feeling unwell? Please don’t come to the Museum if you or a member of your group feel unwell, contact us to rearrange your visit for another day.
Face masks: in-line with government guidelines visitors will need to wear a mask, unless you have a legitimate reason not to wear one. Children under 11 do not need to wear a mask, but can choose to if they wish. This is to help protect our tour guides and Museum staff. Your tour guide will be wearing a clear visor, and keeping distance from your group.
Track and Trace: we will be collecting contact information when you book and sharing with NHS Track and Trace if asked.
Great Missenden remains a great place for all Roald Dahl fans to visit, to walk the historic High Street and the beautiful Buckinghamshire woods in the author’s footsteps. Visitors can still pick up the Museum’s Village and Countryside Trail leaflets to explore the places that inspired Roald Dahl and appear in the stories. The Countryside Trail is a wonderful hour-long stroll, great for all ages, through the fields and beech woods in the heart of Roald Dahl Country.
