This was a lovely place to visit - great variety of exhibits, not just vehicles, but old shop fronts and contents too. Bus and taxi hunt for the little ones too, which my five-year-old loved. Bacon butties and cakes are awesome! But the best thing is the friendly staff - we were chatted to by so many friendly and knowledgeable... More

This is a great place to go with the family and not just for transport enthusiasts! I hadn't expected to enjoy the museum quite as much as I did. I have heard about it many times and glad I took the time to go. Full of history, great exhibits and really friendly staff.

We decided to visit here on the off chance. Pleased we did. The toddler loved the train set up and Thomas train in the cafe which you can make "GO!" Plenty of relics to look at from car, buses, bikes and emergency vehicles. Ask about the annual pass. A very well priced cafe and plenty of treats to tempt anyone.... More

If you are a transport fan you really must visit this place! Although it's practically on our doorstep we had never been here before but it was just such an interesting place with so much to see. Highly recommend even if you are not a transport inspired person. Well worth a visit......

My husband and I came here this morning with our small dog. So much to see here classic cars - coaches and buses and old fashioned shop fronts. Nice cafe too with very reasonable prices. All in all a good morning out. Check opening times before visiting.

Just happened across dover transport museum. What a gem full of memories mostly well restored and all labelled in detail. From motorbikes, scooters, cars, commercial vehicles steam vehicles. The place is full of mementos and nick nacks and your ticket is an annual ticket allowing multiple entries.

We found this place by accident after we had to abandon a planned trip to Samphire Hoe due to rain - and I'm so glad! It's really brilliant - and such good value as you pay once and the ticket lasts a year! There's loads to see - my train-mad 6 and 3 year olds particularly loved the model railways... More

This is a hidden gem. Upon parking it doesn't seem much but once you get inside there is lots to see. My three boys had hours of fun here. Would recommend a visit if you're nearby.

We decided to take some family members here knowing nothing much about this museum and we're so glad we did. What a brilliant place, much bigger than we expected and full of interesting vehicles from many different eras. Run entirely by volunteers, as so many places are, they do a remarkable job and were very friendly and came and engaged... More
