Roald Dahl Museum: Situated in the village where Roald Dahl lived and wrote for 36 years, the Museum was created as a home for the author's unique archive (which you can see on our regular tours and to inspire a love of stories and creative writing in all our visitors. The two fun, interactive and fact-packed biographical galleries tell the fascinating story of Roald Dahl's life, looking at how his experiences shaped him as a writer. The Story Centre puts the imagination of the visitor centre-stage and encourages everyone (young and old) to dress up, make up stories, words and poems or get arty in our craft room.
