Roald Dahl Museum to open

Chocolate-scented doors will open tomorrow, Saturday June 11 2005 and the public will have their first look at the Roald Dahl Museum & Story Centre in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire.

Sue Davies, director of the centre, said: "There are very few places which present reading, writing and creativity in a fun way. Our venue will rectify that, building on Roald Dahl's work and using that as the beginning of a magical journey into further reading and writing."

After passing under a shadow of the BFG (the Big Friendly Giant), guests walk through the museum's chocolate-coated doors into the main building, being careful to avoid the crocodile cunningly disguised as a bench.

Visitors can also expect to be dazzled by a spectacular array of displays and shows highlighting the life and work of one of Britain's favourite authors.
