The Museum is closed on Mondays apart from Bank Holidays and is Free and near the Royal Pavilion. It is quite impressive when you walk in where there is a display of furniture from different eras. There are some lovely pieces of porcelain and paintings. It was interesting reading about the history of Brighton and its growth and how it... More

Did enjoy viewing the First World War exhibition based on accounts of local people. Very poignant and well presented. The other galleries were not for us and probably more of a rainy day venue. Staff in coffee shop not interested in customers, busy talking to each other.

After our visit to the Pavilion we decided to pay a visit to the museum which was very interesting much of the exhibits where the same as we saw a couple of years ago but the nee WW1 exhibition on the first floor was brilliant and very much worth a visit to the museum for that alone.

Right now, there is a WW1 exhibit taking the viewpoint and experience of different people from that time. It is fascinating to know that the Brighton Dome; where the museum is housed, was the Indian Hospital. WW1 was the first war that India had participated in and they were under experienced and didn't have the current weaponry. There were four... More

We have visited many exhibitions at the Museum and have found them to be varied and interesting. The permanent exhibits are certainly worth looking at/listening to and there is a wealth of local interest in the displays.
