If Roald Dahl workshops aren't your thing, don't miss everything else a Museum visit offers:

Take a Museum trail!

Pick up a Bogtrotting Baddies Trail and find some of Roald Dahl's villains as you explore the Roald Dahl Museum. 

You can also pick up a self-guided Village or Countryside Trail from the Museum to explore Roald Dahl country. Walk in the woods that inspired Fantastic Mr Fox, see Matilda's library and visit Roald Dahl's grave.

Explore the Roald Dahl Museum galleries

Find out some fascinating facts about Roald Dahl's life and writing and explore over 40 hands-on activities. Dress up like a fighter pilot, peek into Roald Dahl's Writing Hut, make a stop-frame animation, or head to the craft room for drop-in crafts. 

Quentin Blake exhibition 

While your visiting don't miss the new Quentin Blake exhibition featuring illustrations for the new edition of Billy and the Minpins, alongside extracts from Roald Dahl's manuscripts.
