The acknowledgments of a beloved children's author's darker side continue to come in.
Dahl's family has previously apologized for his comments, which were made outside of his fiction.
The museum said it did not plan to repeat Dahl's anti-Semitic comments, but it was keeping a private record of them so that history couldn't be whitewashed.
Its statement emphasized that it was constantly working on being more welcoming to and inclusive of all backgrounds.
Dahl is beloved for his children’s books, including Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
