Venue type: Outdoor

Roald Dahl Children's Gallery, based at Buckinghamshire County Museum, is a fantastic place for you and the kids to let your imaginations run wild and have loads of fun! It attracts visitors from all over the country, and the world, and has won 2 major awards for education, with plenty of secrets to discover along the way!

There is so much to see and do, it will baffle your brain and boggle your eyes, and it's like walking into a giant pop-up book! You can explore sound with the BFG, discover minibeasts with James and his microscopic friends inside the Giant Peach, and discover buried treasures from the past, and life underground, as you crawl along Fantastic Mr Fox's tunnel!

You will also be able to discover inventions with Willy Wonka, dress up in Victorian school clothes and play some games from yesteryear, but watch out for Miss Trunchbull! Walk through an enormous book into Matilda's Library, where you will find an inviting room full of books, where you can learn more about Dahl's life and work. Watch videos, listen to stories, or just dip into your favourite Roald Dahl book.

Highlights to look out for include BFG dream bottles in the Entrance Foyer, Grandma's head, a Volkswagen Beetle car (in the Giant Peach), and the upside down room from The Twits (you would be amazed at how many people miss this!).
