Roald Dahl wrote bestsellers like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Boy, George's Marvellous Medicine, Witches and many more. The Roald Dahl Museum took all these books and stories to create a place where children get to know the author, his life and his writing hut - the place where all the literary magic happened. Above that they learn where he got his ideas from, how he created such remarkable characters and - what's even more important - that even a brilliant writer like Roald Dahl sometimes took his first draft and threw it in the bin just to start all over again. On a big tv screen in the Story Centre his colleagues - among them J.K. Rowling - tell the visitors about their creative work, which shows that each writer has a unique approach to her/his own writing.
