Model Weekend

Saturday/Sunday August 3rd & 4th

Join us at this traditional museum weekend when exhibits inside the museum are moved around to accomodate additional model railway layouts and a road network for working trucks. In the museum grounds tanks and other military vehicles will be operating alongside the pool where the naval and other maritime models will be put through their paces. A great family day out to be enjoyed by all with catering including light snacks, soft drinks, teas and coffees available throughout the weekend.

Opening Times

The museum is open every Sunday and Wednesday and every Bank Holiday except Christmas between 1030 and 1630 with the last entry at 1530. 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.
