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.
