Discover Dahl's archives

Do you want to see behind the scenes at the Museum? We're lucky enough to have one of the most complete literary archives in the country here at the Museum. This is your chance to take a peek in our archive store - usually closed to the public.

A member of our archive team will show you some of the treasures of the collection. Take a close up look at Roald Dahl's letters and manuscripts, find out some secrets about your favourite Roald Dahl books, and get the chance to ask all your burning Roald Dahl questions to the experts!

Great for older children aged 8 and over and adults - and perfect for kids learning about Roald Dahl and his books at school.
