The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre is an independent charity. It was founded in 2001 by Roald Dahl’s widow, Liccy, and aims to preserve Dahl’s work as well as inspire new writers through literature and creativity.

About the Museum

The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre at Great Missenden in Buckinghamshire offers “a range of exciting sessions for Years 2-4 and Years 5-8 around themes such as crafting characters, editing/redrafting and unlocking ideas and inspiration. We offer two types of session: galleries-based 90 minute sessions and archive-based 180 minute sessions. Both types are based around a key literacy area which is the focus throughout your visit.” If you may be interested in that but can’t make a trip, they also offer streaming services. The Livestream session provides:

  • all learning materials needed in a downloadable Resource Pack
  • a downloadable pre and post-session Activities Pack
  • a downloadable Roald Dahl FAQ poster
  • a 20-minute tech test on a day prior to your session to test your tech and discuss any logistics for the day
  • 10 minutes of set up time just ahead of your session start time to help avoid delays in beginning your session

There are clearly lots of reading events that seem to happen daily, trail sheets as well as a host of half-term activities, it would be great to share the information with parents even if school is unable to take advantage of anything available.
