Roald Dahl Museum

Details from the venue: 

Roald Dahl Museum, a great little family attraction in Great Missenden, the heart of Roald Dahl country.

Get hands-on in the three galleries, packed with activities perfect for 6 to 12 year olds and their families. Find out about Roald Dahl’s school pranks, peek into the author’s original Writing Hut, and discover how Roald Dahl’s real-life adventures inspired his stories. The Museum puts your imagination centre-stage to help you and your family create your own swashboggling stories – just like Roald Dahl did.
