“Terrific fun! The children loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

The museum itself was fairly small and it seemed like the whole place was more dedicated to story telling rather than the life of the author. At first I was sceptical but the kids had an absolutely amazing time. It was quite unlike most other museums which is probably why they enjoyed it so much!

“Entertaining afternoon for young and old”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

Small museum but very hands on in an old fashoned way.the kids in the party are all big fans of the author but you didn't have to be to enjoy the museum. It is small but there is lots to do adn a family tickert was good value at £17.50. Situated in the centre of Aylesbury -nice garden (beign renovated) and very small but reasonably priced cafe.

“An adventure!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

Great place to spend an hour - the kids can roam around through Dahl's world! Great for 3 - 8 year olds!

“Magical museum really brings Roald Dahl books to life!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

I can highly recommend this museum, each room is another book. There is a Giant Peach, and my boys loved Fantasic Mr Fox's tunnel. All the games work and the staff are every helpful. It is next door to the County Museum which is also interesting. We went by train and it is only a short walk from the station. There is a garden so to make it an inexpensive day you can take a picnic.
You can buy the books in the gift shop, it really encouraged my boys to read. Danny Champion of the World is one of our favourites to this day.
Wonderful reasonable day out for all the family.
