Attraction Information

Dover Transport Museum has a fascinating collection of vintage transport, and transport models of all types, including some rare enough to thrill those in the know, and a few unusual ones like a beautifully restored Romany Caravan, charabanc, and a steam roller!

Their 2 large exhibition halls have recreated old Dover street scenes that will stir the memories of many older visitors and give younger ones a glimpse of how things used to be. A great way to discover what live was like years ago, with these lovely bygone street scenes, historic vehicles, and model cars.

You will also find a display about Romany Life, plus Maritime History displays, model cars, and model railways and railway memorabilia. There are also some impressive ship models to see.

The museum holds a number of events throughout the year, so check their events page through our link to see what's on when you visit. Please note the seasonal opening dates, as the museum is only open on Sundays between the end of October to March each year.
