This is a small museum so you can really take your time. On the first floor there is a nice quiet cafe. We enjoyed our brief visit.

Short, interesting galleries, not overwhelming in content. The local history was particularly interesting.

The museum and art gallery are well worth a visit, rain or shine. We were intrigued by the local history exhibits and especially impressed with the 20th century design and a curated exhibit of painting of women by women painters from the fine arts collection.

The wide variety of items on view from furniture through the ages to super size parade costumes. Fairly small so easy to get around. The cafe was rather limited however no complaints about the food or the service.

For a free place this isn't bad. Small but nice. Can walk round it in about 30 mins. Nice gardens in the area.

Never know what to expect from museums but as I spent a lot of my childhood in Brighton was interested in old memories photos etc. this is so much more.
