This answer comes too late probably... There are buses from Adinkerke in Belgium to Dunkerque indeed. From monday to Saturday, they run every 30 minutes. On Sundays that is every hour (see dkbus web site).Bus line 2 does not stop near the museum, Please note that as of 1st September 2018 all buses are free, and the schedules are going to change drastically.
