Our Community Footprint
How we support our Community
Over the years we have become an important heritage and tourism asset for Kent, attracting visitors from near and far. Our transport and social history exhibits have helped preserve memories of old Dover and we introduce many hundreds of school children each year to their local heritage. But we are much more than just the museum’s collection. We are a registered “dementia friendly” venue where people living with dementia and their families are given a warm welcome. We often lend exhibits to care homes, re-enactors, theatre groups and schools. We offer work experience for mainstream and special needs students, and the museum is a meeting place for many clubs. We are prominent in supporting many local community events, such as Port of Dover’s White Cliffs Christmas Fayre, and we have used our technical expertise to help other local charities solve practical problems.
