The Roald Dahl Museum is a celebration of his life and works. It features three rooms based on different eras of his life and is aimed at children aged 6 to 12, though there are also fun activities for younger children.
Explore the Boy Gallery to learn about Dahl’s love for chocolate and schoolboy mischief. The Solo Gallery explores his travels in Africa and the mementos he kept when working in his Writing Hut. You can discover inventions with Willy Wonka and you can even test your sparkiness with the Sparkometer – do you have as much spark as Charlie from the chocolate factory or Sophie and her BFG?
Those who fancy a hand at writing themselves can pick up tips from the Story Centre. After sitting in the writing chair where Dahl came up with his ingenious ideas, or creating your own gobblefunk word, it’s hard not to feel inspired.
Throughout school holidays and at weekends, storytelling sessions are run hourly.
If you’re in the area for a weekend why not make it even more booktastic by visiting the Harry Potter Studios too?
