Found this on the off chance driving through Rolvenden, a lovely hidden gem of a museum. The shop in front of the museum is also a little alladins cave, full of nostalgia. Well worth a visit.

Lovely museum sited behind an antique/curio shop run by husband and wife. Not sure how they managed to cram so much into such a small place, but certainly well worth a visit. Had a seat in the garden whilst my husband examined all the cars. Very interesting

What an amazing collection of pristine Morgan 3 wheelers and a mountain of other paraphernalia and vintage transport. You will not regret the small entrance fee - so much to see. No dusty old museum this -------- an excellent, passion filled place not to be missed.

Thank you Gillian N. for your review, it really does help because customers are always a bit confused by having to come through a shop first.

Look out! Before you know is you pass the motor museum and you will mis a rare collection of Morgans, bicycles and a lot of other items. This museum is crammed with things out of the past. A place to keep in mind on a rainy day....

I suspect that there are very many people who cannot envisage a car with only one rear wheel. I recall importing a Morgan 3 wheeler into Hong Kong many years ago, and when the container was opened all the stevedores went quiet and started looking around to try and find the missing wheel. And remember that Morgan motors are still building three wheelers today.
All of this should encourage you to visit Falstaff Antiques in Rolvenden and see these cars for yourself. When we visited there were eleven models on display, all many decades old and not the current model. After all, this is a museum. There were also a few other antique cars and motor bikes on display.
I thoroughly recommend a visit even if you are not a vintage car fan, as it is interesting to see all the other motoring memorablia on display and also the adjoining antique shop. The owners are very happy to explain anything and the entrance fee is very modest.
