Great Motor Museum in Kent
Jul 2021
Visited this amazing small museum last Thursday. It has a great collection of Morgan 3 Wheeler Cars and so much Automobilia plus a really large display of model vehicles. The owner was very welcoming and friendly.
Would highly recommend it even if you aren’t particularly interested in cars. It’s entered through Falstaff Antiques shop and there is free parking in the Street right outside.

Fantastic

I felt like I'd died and gone to Heaven! What an amazing place. From the simply stunning collection of Morgan 3-wheelers and other vintage cars, vans and motorcycles, to the amazing collection of model cars, badges and other memorabilia, it was just so heart warming.
In one display case I found the Corgi Batmobile and James Bond Aston Martin DB5 (yes, the gold one with the ejector seat). In another, an amazing display of spark plugs - where else would you find such a thing? Truly amazing!

Amazing!
Jul 2021 • Couples
What a brilliant find. You enter via the antiques shop and go through to the garage behind the property to find the most amazing collection of Morgans (mainly 3 wheelers) and other motor memorabilia including the tiniest vintage caravan, bicycles , motorbikes, road and marketing signs, etc, all closely packed in together and lovingly cared for by the modest owner. Places like this warm your heart…

Sheer motoring bliss

I stumbled upon this small and fascinating place by nothing more than coincidence and I must say my luck wont get better than this. What is at face value a small shop with some old automotive memorabilia turned into the most wonderful and jaw dropping collection and organisation of old restored Morgans and various other unique car centred signs, badges and more. Even a non car fan must appreciate the attention to detail, history, craftsmanship and value in this collection. I urge anyone to visit and support this fascinating collection and hear the story of the man behind it. I'm privileged and honoured to visit this place and talk to the owner and wish everyone could do the same. I'm delighted to say I purchased 2 items from the "gift store" and will cherish the model cars that I purchased. I would give 6 stars if I could and would absolutely visit again. Because it is the least I can do I will be giving the CM Booth collection a full 5 stars. I loved this place and was speechless and in awe as I walked around. Stunning.

Hello, Many thanks for your review, and for braving the weather! Not a lot of room for more cars, but we do change some for different ones at times, and always adding more small items. A new car club badge display will be added this week.

Great Collection !
Aug 2020
Fantastic little museum. Hidden away in a garage at the back of the antiques shop this place is a little gem. The cars are beautiful and you can see are loved and cared for. Lots of other bits to see, to be honest I really don't know how they got it all in ! 1-2 hours is all you need, I'm not a big car fan but enjoyed seeing these cars and reading the info on them. I visit many places but love it when I come across places like this. Totally worth a visit, even more so if you love cars.

Thank you for this review, somehow I missed answering at the time. Nice coming from a 'not really a car fan'!

Great find!
Sep 2019
We happened upon this little museum while on a weekend away and it was so full of English charm. It was a lovely way to spend an hour or so and the owner is full of knowledge and happy to share his experience. Very worth a visit and a wander around the antique shop too.

Out for a drive
Feb 2020
We decided to go out for a drive and came across this lovely shop. We wandered around the shop and then asked about the museum, I’m not into cars but my partner is so we went through the back to the museum and I so wasn’t expecting this little gem. It was a great collection of 3 wheeler morgans and great motoring signs and auto memorabilia.

Wonderful Collection of Morgan cars and motoring memorabilia!
Dec 2019 • Couples
Dropped in on a whim, as friends had mentioned this collection. Spent a while browsing their antique shop before walking through it to see the collection.

Thoroughly enjoyed it, and talking to Mr & Mrs Booth afterwards.

An unlikely gem!
Nov 2019
Only unlikely as I know nothing about three wheeled Morgans! But this collection, which includes far more than these vintage cars, is full of interest. The garage they are housed in goes back a long and enticing way with much to be amazed at and delighted with on the way. Cabinets of model cars and parts, hanging bicycles, a penny farthing, a brilliant caravan, signs and posters, motorised bikes and more and more. The Morgans themselves scintillate with gleaming polish and are adorned with mascots almost beyond belief. And if you are a knowledgeable enthusiast you will not want to leave.
Leave a little, or a lot, of time also to browse the Antique Shop which fronts the road and through which you pass to purchase your Museum ticket, very cheap, and to reach the Museum beyond just down the small garden.

Thank you very much for your very descriptive review, I hope this will entice some of our more doubting visitors to venture in! This time of the year I know it can be rather cold in the museum building, I hope you were not too frozen.
