A good place to take kids especially those who are interested in Egyption history and the museum has lots of Egyption artifacts and information. The café next to the museum does great coffee!

This museum is well laid out with a really eclectic mix of exhibits. The area covering the history of Brighton was brilliant.

Nice sized museum with welcome cafe in part of the fabulous Brighton Pavillion complex. Good break if you are feeling the need to get away from shops and beach.

After reading reviews I had high hopes for my visit to , only to feel a little disappointed. The Art gallery was a little sparse and nothing fresh and new to be seen. I would suggest walking down the beach and visit the many little shops where designer makers and artists work away and new original art can be seen.... More

The architecture itself has very special, so it's already there is a benefit, but the museum hold interesting collections inc kids' rooms, it appeals for all ages. I visited it for WW1 exhibition and hey used the gallery well for a display. their museum shop offers you more for insight of current & permanent collections.

Whenever I am in Brighton, I always try to find time to visit this museum. I used to visit it as a schoolboy and it still has fascinating attraction. There are many aspects of history displayed - from the stone age to the 1960's. There are even refreshments to be had - a nice little incentive.

A visit to the Brighton museum gives a glimpse into another world of long ago. Well preserved piece of history. Brighton featured in many old TV shows and it was interesting visit to the and learn more about the their past. If you are into Art there's a good Exhibiton.

This is one of the best museums we have been to, made even better by having earphones which guide you around informing you of things you would never know if your like me too lazy to read all the boards. Fantastic day out well worth the money!
