Situated in the town centre and set over three floors, Dover Museum has a range of fascinating real objects, models and original pictures showing the history of Dover.
Dover Museum & Bronze Age Boat Gallery
The ground floor exhibition traces Dover’s history from the Stone Age to the Saxons, the first floor has special exhibitions which change annually – the current exhibition is ‘’Twisting the Dragons Tail” – commemorating the centenary of the Zeebrugge Raid. The top floor gallery shows the growing town and port of Dover since medieval times.
See the oldest known sea-going boat, the Bronze Age Boat, at Dover Museum. Discovered in 1992, just yards from where it is exhibited, the boat is thought to be some 3000 years old and is now housed in an award winning gallery.
