Roald Dahl Museum Opens Writing Hut Exhibit

The UK-based Roald Dahl Museum & Story Centre has opened a new display: Roald Dahl‘s Writing Hut. According to Bucks Free Press, the hut reproduces the space that Dahl used to write.

Here’s more about the exhibit: “The centrepiece of our brand new displays in Solo Gallery is Roald Dahl’s Writing Hut, complete with all its original contents and furnishings. Visitors can see the ‘little nest’ as Roald Dahl called it, exactly as he had it set up, with all the extraordinary and fascinating objects he kept at hand for contemplation and inspiration.”

The museum added several new interactive exhibits surrounding the Writing Hut including a World War II airplane cockpit, a writing and drawing activity (where players get to pretend they are Dahl and illustrator Quentin Blake) and an ‘Ideas Avery.”

Dahl’s wife, Felicity Dahl, said she was “thrilled that everybody will now be able to see the room in the hut where Roald weaved his magical books.”

Will you make the trip “across the pond” to see the writing hut?
