Bit of a Brighton curio

A small museum housing a lot of stuffed creatures. A visit won't take long, but as a view into a bygone era it's worth popping in.

We love a trip to the booth museum. Its free with all donations welcome. My son enjoys all the information and history of the animals. Also seeing so many different types. We used to live in brighton so everytime we visit we have to add the museum to our trip. Its a great visit not to be missed.. Excellent..

A wonderful and quirky museum run by a team of helpful and enthusiastic volunteers. There is nowhere quite like this museum - a testament to the benevolent Victorian age!

This is a museum full of stuffed birds and animals shot with a punt gun. It doesn't sound good but it's fascinating. Beautifully set out it really is the acceptable face of taxidermy. It's free and well worth a look.

This is n amazing place to visit. Be warned there are a lot of stuffed birds! But there are a lot of skeletons of different creatures. Local fauna and flora are celebrated and topical displays change on a regular basis. For us it was a great place to visit on a rainy day but with the park and tea rooms... More

This is a brilliant attraction just outside brighton which is free and informative. The staff is really helpful and are all volunteers. Good place to spend an hour in and is great for kids and adults alike. Definitely recommended for anyone visiting brighton

A wonderful way to spend a rainy afternoon in Brighton. I loved learning about this intriguing collector's life's well as wandering round the museum to see the exhibition. Free entry which is a bonus.

Some Fridays at 10 (check out their website for when they are running http://www.brighton-hove-rpml.org.uk/WhatsOn/Pages/BoothEarlyYears.aspx) the Booth run early years sessions for pre schoolers. There's painting, usually clay modelling, drawing, a story and a bear hunt. It costs £4.50 but the kids love it and it gets them into museums at an early age.

An interesting place to visit, my daughter loves to go every time we visit Brighton. It's free and there are plenty of animal specimens on display. May help a homework project!
