Museum open from Wednesday, February 14th

The museum will open at 10.30 on Wednesday February 14th and we look forward to welcoming all visitors. We have made changes, added items to the collection and invested in our cafe which is now able to offer a wider menu choice and a range of freshly made ground coffees. We will be open every Wednesday and Sunday throughout the year and all of the upcoming Bank Holidays. Check the website and social media for news of special events at the museum.

Opening Times

Opening times are between 1030 and 1530 with the last entry at 1430. Why not come along and enjoy a great day out for all the family. All full price, annual entry tickets are valid for a whole year from the date of first entry, so you can return on as many open days as you like.

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 a visit to the Dover Transport Museum makes a memorable family day out.
