Dover Museum  Being one of the oldest of England's museums, the collection contains a great number  of objects reflecting the changing fashions in museum collecting. It contains, as well as  objects of local importance, a range of unusual items reflecting the Victorian love for  what was considered unusual or 'exotic'. It is also home to the Dover Bronze Age Boat,  the world's oldest known seagoing boat and a fascinating archaeological discovery.
