About Dover Transport Museum
We are a registered charity and the only museum of its kind in Kent. The Dover Transport Museum is home to many forms of vintage transport and also features vintage shop fronts displaying the kind of items that were familiar to our young visitor’s grandparents and great grandparents. With a large visitor operated model railway and a taxi & bus hunt for children, a visit to the Dover Transport Museum makes a memorable family day out.
What life was like years ago…
Our two large exhibition halls house recreated street scenes of old Dover businesses that will stir the memories of many older visitors and give younger ones a glimpse of how things used to be. The museum’s transport collection is only part of the hundreds of exhibits illustrating everyday life over the last 100 years
The main attractions include:
- Historic Vehicles *
- Vintage Garage & Motorcycle Shop
