Wondrous walks

Join us every Tuesday for some guided walks that lead you out of the Museum and into Roald Dahl country. Discover the town and countryside that inspired Dahl's stories.

Peachy Museum trail

Pick up a trail from the ticket desk when you arrive to help you and your kids explore the Museum - you'll earn a peachy sticker at the end.

Help decorate our peach

Every visitor, young and old, can take a bit of creative time out in George's Crafty Kitchen. As well as lots of colourful craft sheets to pick from, you can also make your own bug to add to our peach - all free with your Museum ticket.

Explore Roald Dahl Country

Looking for things to do with the kids in Buckinghamshire this summer? We're based in Great Missenden, in the heart of Roald Dahl Country. Roald Dahl lived and wrote in the village for 36 years, and he was inspired by the village and local chilterns countryside. See our July and August what's on pages for our guided walks during the summer.
