General information This great little award-winning Museum is aimed at 6 to 12 year olds and their families and is situated in Great Missenden where Roald Dahl lived and wrote for 36 years. The Museum has two fun and fact-packed biographical galleries (one of which now features Roald Dahl’s original Writing Hut) and a fantabulous interactive Story Centre full of hands-on displays and games.

In the school holidays and at weekends, an inspiring range of workshops, events and free storytelling sessions take place. Free craft activities are always on offer, while the Village Trail leads intrepid visitors around Great Missenden to see the places that feature in the stories.

Café Twit serves a family-friendly range of home-made soups, sandwiches and cakes. The Shop is a treasure-trove of books, toys, gifts and pocket-money items. Visit the online shop at
