Well worth a visit. The displays are exceptionally good and the staff take a genuine interest in talking to people about the exhibits. The cafe is clean and reasonably priced especially if you have children. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit.

Visited this museum with my wife, daughter and two 10 year old grandchildren. I had not been to this museum at its current site and was amazed by how much had been added and how well laid out it is. It's important to remember that this is all run by volunteers and what a great job they do. They have... More

Thanks to all the staff that keep this place going. For a small town this is an unknown venue to most. Can't believe how many locals don't know about it I have been on several occasions, the motorbike days are well organised and busy. If your looking for a full day out its probably not the place to go, a... More

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.
