Roald Dahl Museum

Situated in the village where Roald Dahl lived and wrote for 36 years (Great Missenden), the Roald Dahl Museum was created as a home for the author's unique archive and to inspire a love of stories and creative writing in its visitors. Obviously, this is a long way from Glasgow - but there are things on the website to enjoy without visiting, particularly the Discover Dahl section which has fantastic facts, quizzes and, best of all, a virtual tour of Dahl's writng hut. You can even view the contents of his wastepaper basket, his filing cabinet and his desk. These include his false teeth! Great fun.


  1. Fantastic, I love Roald Dahl and was just writing a blog post about James and the Giant Peach when I came across this. I never knew there was a museum, sounds amazing! Mia x
