UPDATE Jan 2021: 

Due to the new lockdown, the Museum will not be open for the foreseeable future. If you have tickets booked we will be in touch with you to sort this.
We will open as soon as we can, and as soon as it's safe to do so. In the meantime, if you'd like to support us you can still shop online. Purchases on this website are managed by the Museum and all profits directly benefit the Museum and our collection. You can shop online here.
Thanks to you all for your support during this difficult time, we miss welcoming you all!

If you are able to, you can make a donation to the Museum via PayPal here. Any donation you are able to make will help us continue our work of preserving Roald Dahl's archive for everyone, and to inspire future generations to unlock their own stories.

Donating extra tickets

If you’re able to you can donate extra tickets when you book (like bringing your imaginary friends!). We really, really hope you do: opening the Museum with guided tours is the best and safest experience we can offer, but it hugely restricts our capacity; we estimate to around 15% of what was normal. We hope you can be as generous as possible to keep the Museum open until we can welcome visitors in greater numbers once again.
