Roald Dahl Children's Gallery

Permanent Gallery

Hands-on discovery and amazing science inspired by Roald Dahl’s stories

Share –

The Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery, packed full of amazing exhibits, is like walking into an enormous pop-up book.

This unique Gallery, housed in a charming old coach house, is a short walk across the courtyard from the main museum building. The Gallery is on two floors and from the entrance foyer you can either go directly into the Discover Gallery or take the stairs up to the Imagination Gallery on the first floor. You can also, like Charlie and Willy Wonka, travel through space in the Great Glass Elevator between the two floors.

In the Discover Gallery explore five themed areas each inspired by one of Roald Dahl’s wonderful stories.
