Bring the whole family to celebrate Roald Dahl’s birthday! There’s no better time to head to the Roald Dahl Museum in Great Missenden than for the world-famous storyteller’s big day. There’s plenty to keep the kids from age 5 to 12 entertained - explore the galleries, peek inside Roald Dahl’s Writing Hut, and join in with special James and the Giant Peach activities.
Pick up a trail and follow the clues around the Museum, finding out fascinating facts as you go. Bump into the roving musician Will, and help him create a PEACHY song especially for Roald Dahl’s birthday. See the illustrations from the first ever edition of James and the Giant Peach and join in with some up-beat Roald Dahl storytelling throughout the day.
If you fancy adding some extra-special touches to your day, you can book onto one of our Roald Dahl Day activities: Join in with the BRICKLIVE toy brick build and help assemble a giant PEACH of a mosaic using over 24,000 toy bricks. Go on an archive tour to get close to Roald Dahl’s letters and manuscripts. Head out of the Museum with a guide to explore Roald Dahl Country on a walk in the footsteps of the master storyteller.
