Dover Transport Museum is the only museum of its kind in Kent.

There you will find memories of old Dover, many forms of vintage transport and old shop fronts full of things that were familiar to the grandparents and great grandparents of our younger visitors. With a cafe and a warm welcome for children, who can enjoy a large, visitor-operated model railway and a “taxi & bus hunt”, a visit to the museum makes a memorable family day out.

Our two large exhibition halls house recreated street scenes of old Dover that will stir the memories of many older visitors and give younger ones a glimpse of how things used to be.
