Celebrate Charlie and the Chocolate Factory this Christmas

Pick up our Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-themed trail and explore the galleries. Hunt for clues around the Museum and learn some facts about the book.

You can also pop into our pop-up factory and try out Wonka-themed activities. Stack boxes and play with factory pipes. Design your own room for the the factory to display on our wall or play ‘Who? What?’ and make your own Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-inspired story ideas.
