Brighton Museum has always been a favourite of mine since I was a child. Now that I am a member of the Brighton Pavilion and Museums Trust I pay more regular visits to this wonderful facility. On a rainy day there is nothing better than to wander the galleries of this museum. I am a bit disappointed that the amber... More

We loved the display of furniture which was really well displayed and described. The pottery exhibition was also very good coming right up-to-date with anti fracking pieces. We disliked the crowds of very noisy and badly behave school children who raced around with no awareness of other visitors. The teacher in charge, if there were any, seemed totally disinterested in... More

Lots to see here from from fine art to 20th century treasures. I saw Salvador Dali's Mae West Lips Sofa and a beautiful painting called 'Early Morning' by Dod Proctor, and a couple of sketches by Barbara Hepworth.

Sit up on the gallery looking down and order the afternoon tea - melt in the mouth scones. Great to visit after the Pavilion.

We had a great time here. The furniture design exhibit was really fun, the history of Brighton exhibits were entertaining, and it was a very welcoming museum.

the party was just 2 adults The exhibits were very well laid out and plenty of staff to answer any questions. Particularly pleased that I found out about a relative who died during the war

You can't get better value in Brighton than the museum and art gallery. Check out the late, great Rockin' Bill's drape and creepers. Whoo!

This was just the most wonderful experience and so unexpected since we just happened on it. The displays were fantastic, with so much thought given to all sections. The displays were easy to follow and understand and the environmental section was very well explained. Anyone who studies this should feel very guilty about eating fish and using anything (plastic), we... More

In the grounds of the Pavilion. A lovely building even on its own. Free to go in, and beautifully organised exhibitions. There was a furniture one when we went.
