Tiny building packed with beautifully restored cars and a wide range of tranpsort memorabilia. All of the Morgan cars are 3 wheelers and date back to the very start of the brand. They are all restored to as new condition and each one represents a development step.

Hello Thompson51,
Thank you for your review, as you mention Morgans have lots of variants, with 7 makes of engines being fitted, all represented here, and numerous variations of body styles.

A really great little Museum, packed with all kinds of collectables, from tiny objects in many cabinets to tri-cars, cars and a delivery van, run by an husband & wife passionate team looking after the collector and enthusiast both of which go out of their way to talk and give advice on the speciality on restoration of the cars in the collection. A must to travel to. If Group travelling though best plan ahead as its tight to walk round for space.

Lovely small privately owned car Museum, CM Booth has collected anything about Morgan Threewheeler cars over years and years, a great collection of These lovely small cars and a massive amount of Automobilia, modelcars, etc. If you ask Mr Booth kindly, he will maybe take out one of his lovely Threewheelers and will offer you a testsdrive in th epassenger seat for a small donation to the Museum. You will enjoy the drive, a unique experience!

We noticed this museum, a few years ago when driving through the village, but it was too late in the day to visit.

Today we were in the area again, and decided to call in - and we're so glad we did!

It's a real little gem, collected by a man with a passion for cars, bikes, and all the associated paraphernalia Every square inch is filled with such a wonderful assortment of items, that it's hard to know where to look. So many of them brought back memories, that my face ached from smiling throughout the visit.

There are lovingly restored Morgans, bicycles, motor bikes, a caravan, and thousands of other small items tucked around them all. Our eyes were darting from side to side, didn't know where to look next!

Thank you for letting us share your wonderful collection!

This museum although quite small is definitely worth a visit particularly for those who love their cars. The collection consists of old Morgans all of which have been beautifully restored.
