If you are in the Aylesbury area and enjoy Roald Dahl and his marvellous creations at all, then this is an absolute must. Full of brilliant things and activities that are a true tribute to such a marvellous author

If I could have another day out there I would take it, even if I was offered a chocolate cake if I didn't take it. Review by my six year old son, word for word

Following a very lacklustre visit to the Roald Dahl Museum in Great Missenden we made our way to Aylesbury and found this little gem. There is a gallery devoted to Roald Dahl with lots of fun exhibits that are informative and interactive. There is a...More

Small Gallery alongside the Bucks Museum but you have to pay to get in. Took an 8yr old to visit, who knew his Roald Dahl but exhibits didn't seem to interest him despite a bit of prodding from some helpful staff. Some of the exhibits...More

Planning to visit the Roald Dahl Children's Gallery for a nice day out with my Niece's It would be better if they had a website, do they? Is it worth the money? Thanks :)

Fun, informative and interactive. If you want to take a toddler to a Roald Dahl museum, this is a better option than the one in Great Missenden, that is aimed for older children. It doesn't mean older children won't enjoy it as well.

4.95 per adult and 6,95 per child a bit pricey I thought for what there is in there it was a struggle to spend over a hour in there
