The Roald Dahl Museum courtyard

In Boy and Solo galleries, find out about Roald Dahl’s schoolboy pranks and hunt for the mouse in the gobstopper jar, explore a Gladiator cockpit to learn about his RAF experiences and step inside his original Writing Hut. In the Story Centre, listen to top tips from your favourite authors, make a stop-frame animation, create a character or make up your own gobblefunk word.


Weekend and school holidays events

At weekends and in the school holidays, our storytellers will entertain you with Roald Dahl’s Dirty Beasts and Revolting Rhymes and you can join in with our events and workshop sessions. Pick up a free Village or Countryside Trail and head out to discover the places that inspired the stories. Your admission wristband will allow you to come and go as you please throughout the day of your visit.
