Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre
Muddy says: A fabulous compact museum all about Dahl and his famous characters, with a packed schedule of activities including storytelling and arts and crafts.
Roald Dahl lived in the village of Great Missenden for 36 years and one legacy of that fact is the fabulous Museum and Story Centre that bear his name. It’s been attracting visitors for years with its interactive hands-on fun exhibits and Story Centre where Dahl’s tales and those by visiting authors are read to children.
There are two biographical galleries around a central courtyard, where you can learn all about Dahl and his inspiration for his plotlines (you can even visit the actual shed in which Dahl used to write) and there’s an on-site cafe with treats inspired by his now iconic fictional characters. One of the best things about this museum is its jam-packed programme of activities, including Chiddlers’ Hour for toddlers in term time, and gazillions of arts and crafts sessions, so your little one is bound to come home with some fabulous new creation.
