The Roald Dahl Children's Gallery is located in the centre of Aylesbury, on a site shared with the Buckinghamshire County Museum. The gallery is more an experience than a museum - walking into the Discover Gallery on the ground floor is like walking into a giant pop-up book.

Characters from Roald Dahl's immensely popular children's stories populate the gallery; children can go inside James' giant peach, explore odd inventions with Willie Wonka, or experience science through hands-on experiments.

There are optical toys from the Victorian era, magic mirrors, a camera obscura, an Upside-Down Room, and more. Kids can dress up in Victorian clothes, crawl through a tunnel with Fantastic Mr Fox, and play a giant pipe organ.

Separate admission prices apply to the Children's Gallery and the County Museum.
