The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre

Opening hours and admission

The exterior of the Roald Dahl Museum

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!
