the roald dahl museum

we went to the roald dahl museum yesteday and it was fantastic. it’s only a small place, but there’s so much for kids to do if they are in to crafting and creating. adults are inspired too.

after visiting the museum we went to the local church where roald dahl is buried – you have to follow the BFG’s footprints to get to his grave.

and seeing his grave was a strange end to a day which revolved around a man with an amazing imagination (and abililty to transfer that to books), and who lived within our lifetime.
