Nothing beats a wander though a well laid out museum - especially one that contains such a wide range of exhibits and also some things remembered from one's own childhood

The Museum and Art Gallery is a delight. The exhibition on Egyptology and costumes was very interesting and kept our seven year old amused for over an hour. There was a lot to see and learn about Brighton over the past 100 years. Would definitely go back again.

The Museum and Art Gallery are fantastic: this is an exceptional regional collection, especially for the applied arts and Art Nouveau & Art Deco particularly noteworthy. First-class temporary exhibitions & programmes for all ages and tastes. The museum cafe used to be a lovely and welcoming place: very good value, traditional, with family-oriented menus and staffed by friendly locals of... More

This is a fascinating museum - its ground floor display of furniture through the ages is particularly fascinating and I enjoy visiting it whenever we return to Brighton. The gallery cafe overlooks this exhibition and used to be very good. The menu is quite small but along with the standard toasties and jackets it offers some interesting quiche, which this... More

Lots of Victorian household items, several collections of mugs, artwork, ceramics, etc. Well worth a visit while in town.

An great fee museum, small enough to be manageable but with enough variety to suit all tastes for both adults and children. The exhibits about Brighton through the ages were especially interesting and the building itself is worth taking time over. This complex of public spaces including the attached Brighton Dome make this a location in the city centre worth... More

I love Brighton Museum and I've spent a lot of time there. Some of the visiting shows are outstanding and for a relatively small museum (compared to London) it attracts first class displays. There is a small charge for some of the exhibits in the upstairs gallery but if you don't want to pay the rest of the museum is... More

An eclectic collection of artefacts from local history to the Egyptians by way of popularist porcelain and furniture.

In order the reasons to visit as far as we are concerned are - the Willet's Pottery Collection (unsurpassed) and the furniture collection. It also forms part of the Dome complex and rounds off a visit to the pavilion. An area of disappointment is the local history. The café does good coffee but otherwise is just ok as is the... More
