combining the Great escape music festival with a visit to the museum. The combination of some new up and coming artists and the reverential atmosphere of a museum is a compelling combination not to be missed.

We really enjoyed the visit to the Museum and art gallery, and the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition was on, which made it even better. The furniture over the years was particularly interesting.

Great museum with lots of interesting exhibits. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition was on when I visited but I was fortunate enough to arrive just as the 'bitesize talk' was about to start - so glad I did! Make sure you visit the tea rooms as well which serves tea in proper silver tea pots!

The museum used to be free enter but now you have to pay which I think is bad if you are a regular to the museum. The gift shop is still worth a look!

My partner and I are regular visitors to the Brighton Museum and just love it. A treasure trove of interesting exhibits and plenty of history about Brighton. We've seen all there is to see now (several times over...) but just keep coming back for the delightful little cafe upstairs. Situated on the balcony you get a lovely view down across... More
