Dover Museum is situated in the Market Square in the centre of Dover.

There is a coach drop-off point in Church Street (CT16 1LY) accessible from the one-way system from Castle Street.

The bus station in Pencester Road is about a five minute walk from the museum, along Pencester Road with the traffic flow, then left along the pedestrianised Cannon Street into Market Square.

From the railway station, the museum is about a 7-minute walk. Turn right from the station exit, then left onto Folkestone Road. At the roundabout, turn right down York Street, towards the rear of the Dover Discovery Centre (formerly the White Cliffs Experience). Dover Museum is situated next door to the Dover Discovery Centre with its entrance on the Market Square.
