Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre

Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre

The Museum opened to the public on 10 June 2005. From the shadowy figure of the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) visible on the High Street wall outside, to the crocodile cunningly disguised as a bench, the whole building takes Roald Dahl’s characters and stories as its theme. The architects, HawkinsBrown and gallery designers Bremner & Orr worked their magic and transformed the old coaching inn and yard into a series of galleries that tell Roald Dahl’s own story.

Visit the Roald Dahl Museum in Great Missenden, near to where the author lived in the village for 36 years until his death in 1990 and wrote all of his famous children’s books in a specially built Writing Hut in his garden, the inside of which you can now see in the Museum. Many of his stories are set in and around the village. A great little family attraction in the heart of Roald Dahl country. Get hands-on in the three galleries, packed with activities perfect for 6 to 12 year olds and their families. Find out about Roald Dahl's school pranks, peek into the author's original Writing Hut, and discover how Roald Dahl's real-life adventures inspired his stories. The Museum puts your imagination centre-stage to help you and your family create your own swashboggling stories - just like Roald Dahl did.
