A bit about us

Come face-to-face with Fantastic Mr Fox, measure up to your Roald Dahl heroes, pull a power pose next to Matilda and discover Roald Dahl's famous Writing Hut - the birthplace of your favourite characters - at the Museum of the World's No.1 Storyteller.


Join in with free Roald Dahl storytelling at weekends and in school holidays. See website for exact dates.


You’ll get a trail sheet when you arrive to help you explore, as well as your very own Story Ideas Book. If you’re the arty sort you can while away the hours in our Crafty Kitchen at the back of the Museum.


Pick up one of the free trails to explore the local area that inspired Roald Dahl. Why not visit Mr Fox’s woods?


We have plenty of indoor and outdoor picnic tables. You can pop out for food or buy some snacks in the Museum Shop. Look out for pop-up food stalls in the school holidays, details online.


Perfect for pocket money items and gifts, plus exclusive Museum edition books.


We’ve got a baby change, high chairs, a buggy store, accessible loos and a drinking fountain to make your visit as easy as possible.

The Museum is mostly based on the ground floor which is fully accessible. Upstairs rooms can be accessed by a lift.  All Museum corridors, spaces between exhibits and doors should be wide enough to allow access for people with a range of mobility levels and assistance equipment
