Broke our walk here and had a cup of tea, The museum is small but interesting. Free to enter, it's well worth a visit. It gave me a good sense of what life must have been like for the civilian population of Dover during WWII.

Very interesting and free too.An intriguing collection of memorabilia well presented with excellent written descriptions.I found the area devoted to Coward and Fleming particularly interesting.Royce was also compelling because his partner Rolls was killed near us in Bournemouth.
