About this location

This great little Museum has two fun and fact-packed biographical galleries and a fantabulous Story Centre. In Boy and Show more… Solo, visitors can learn about the events that shaped Roald Dahl as a writer, from his illicit motorbike outings at school to his time as a World War Two fighter pilot.

In the Story Centre, visitors can get creative with plot, character and language and discover how writers from J.K. Rowling to Benjamin Zephaniah write. Visitors can also explore a replica of Roald Dahl's famous Writing Hut, sit in his writing chair and get some gloriumptious story ideas.
