School Visits

Special rates are available for school visits during term times.  We provide varied activities suitable for KS1 / KS2 pupils who are given exclusive access to the museum on days we are closed to the public. We also cater for special needs school children.  If you are a teacher or education professional and want more information please contact Ken Tranter, School Visits Co-ordinator, by email at

On 6th May 2019  Collège Verlaine,  Bethune, France chose Dover Transport Museum as the destination for a group of 13 year old students making their first trip to an English speaking country.  We are proud to have been chosen by the College; it was a great day for students and museum volunteers alike.
