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.

We were recommended to visit here and were not disappointed. A delightful little tea room offering snacks or lunches. To the side is a small but very informative museum, outlining the Hellfire corner of the Kent coastline. Lots of information in a small area. A...More

This is a small museum of the second world war. However it is really authentic and interesting and worth a visit. You can get eats here as well.

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.

A sign outside a tea room says "museum" - what do you expect to find- a small irrelevant museum but this is so not the case. Full of history about the area, famous people that lived there and historical artefacts. They even have bomb shelter...More
