Have been quite a few times, my favourite exhibition was the Biba one a while back.The permanent exhibitions are great, local Brighton bits a plenty.Nice gift shop.took my mum and dad on their last trip to Brighton and treated them to afternoon tea. Scones were tasty but a little pricey for what we got.

Our main reason for visiting was to see the photography work in the art gallery. We were pleasantly surprised by the rest of the museum. Lots of interesting artifacts including a room of items from ancient egypt.

Love this museum and the information is presented in such intriguing and entertaining way. Just the first time I went there, after I got headache from that much information. Need to go several times to read, listen and watch all the available information. Everything in this museum is so amazingly interesting!

This museum has a great little section on how Brighton was affected during WW2. The Egyptian room is also a point of interest. It was quite good value and an interesting way to spend a couple of hours.

My favourite was a collection of china figures etc illustrating, often comically or satirically, aspects of British life over the past 200 years or so.

Quite a nice museum, but not organised very well. It's a bit jumbled, but some interesting pieces. Doesn't take long so fills a wet hour.

Nice collection of all kinds of stuff - mid century modern, local history, etc. Worth the time to spend a few hours here. Nice shop and cafe. Friendly desk staff.

I visited the Museum & Gallery during a weekend away in Brighton. It doesn't take long to see everything here. The Photography exhibition is definitely worth seeing.
