The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre

Book Tickets Online


This is a fantastic new venue - opening summer 2005 - where visitors can discover more about Roald Dahl, one of the world's most popular authors, creator of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory, Matilda, The BFG and the disgusting Mr and Mrs Twit. Walk through the the chocolate doors and unearth secrets about the people and places which inspired Dahl's tales, use touch-screens to read his hand written notes and visit a replica of his writing hut. The museum is a treasure trove of lively hands-on displays, activities and story-making ideas, where you can pick up writing tips, not only from Dahl himself, but also from the likes of Phillip Pullman, J.K. Rowling, Jaqueline Wilson and Benjamin Zephaniah. Throughout the year there are activities for children and their families, as well as a programme of workshops and evening events for adults.

Opening times: Tues - Sun and Bank Holiday Mondays 10.00am - 5.00pm
