  • Nice little museum, spent about 1.5hrs looking g around. Some exhibits are broken but it was great to see a bronze age boat. Free entry but limited pay and display town parking nearby.
  • A great collection of local history, covering many time periods from prehistoric, through Roman occupation and then on to the military fortifications of the medieval and napoleonic eras.
  • A great museum on the history and archaeology of Dover. The Bronze age boat is a must-see.
  • Had a lovely few hours here . Will come again . Favourite thing was the Bronze Age boat but so many wonderful things to see
  • A free an interesting experience. You must see all the floors. I will go again.
