The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre is a fun and fact packed inspirational day out for the whole family, situated in the village where Roald Dahl lived and wrote for 36 years.
Enter the chocolate doors to discover our 3 hands on galleries that contain over 40 interactive displays! There are 2 biographical galleries to explore, ‘Boy' and ‘Solo', where you will find out about all the real life experiences that shaped your favourite stories. Learn about schoolboy pranks and hunt for the mouse in the gobstopper jar, and explore a Gladiator cockpit to discover details of Roald Dahl's RAF experiences.
The third gallery, the squiffling Story Centre, is a creative hub where you can let your imaginations run wild and get busy filling up your Ideas Books (issued on arrival), creating characters, making movies, and dressing up. You can also step inside his original Writing Hut!
As well as the 3 galleries, you can enjoy free drop in crafts every day in George's Crafty Kitchen. On weekends and during school holidays they offer phizz whizzing workshops, including chocolate decorating, poetry, mask making, cooking, animation and scientific experiments, not to mention free, noisy story telling from the wacky staff!
