Enjoy splendiferous fun at the Roald Dahl Museum
Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire
Ever wondered where Charlie and the Chocolate Factory started? This family-friendly museum has answers for children and adults of all ages.
Discover the magic of the World’s No.1 Storyteller this summer. Pull a power pose next to Matilda, measure yourself against the BFG, test your sparkiness on the Spark-o-meter and come face-to-face with Fantastic Mr Fox. Brilliant fun for all the family, with adults (yes you!) encouraged to join in.
Situated in Great Missenden, the museum offers you the opportunity to set foot in the village and countryside that Roald Dahl lived in for 36 years. Discover the places that inspired Roald Dahl’s stories and characters, and see inside his famous Writing Hut, where the stories you know and love were born. Round off your visit via the museum shop for tons of Roald Dahl goodies, support the Museum as a charity and help preserve Roald Dahl’s archive and Writing Hut.
Pack and picnic as the museum also has both indoor and outdoor seating for you to enjoy your lunch. The Shop stocks locally sourced treats from Salty Dog, Chiltern Ice Cream and more to keep your tummies ticking over. Whilst in the area, why not take a wander around the village and beyond, using the Museum’s free Village and Countryside Trail guides which point out the places that inspired Roald Dahl and feature in the stories?
