I used to think this museum was really good but my recent visit showed it to be a bit tired looking. The worst thing is that I simply couldn't find it even though I had been before many years ago. I walked to the Brighton Dome building where I thought it was, walked in and found a large bright cafeteria.... More

It is a really good museum, but I went to pop in the other day and it was over a tenner to get in! Free if you live in Brighton, but I think it's a bit overpriced now. From what I can remember it's a nice museum, though

We were enjoying wandering around Brighton with no fixed agenda apart from some time out. We walked through the Park and decided to visit the Museum and Art Gallery. It had been some years since we had last paid a visit. We had a lovely time. There was so much to look at and enjoy with a lot of hands... More

Unique is the best word to describe this museum. The artifacts and treasures will not be found elsewhere. Allow a few hours. Big museums really compete to show works by known artists. This is the opposite. Good art is displayed and the presentation is different. We stopped midway and went to the cafe.

Interesting museum with a lot of nice paintings and artefacts. Easy to look around in an hour or so and a café there as well

Combine this museum with a trip to the Pavilion. Both are excellent. The museum had some great exhibits and at the time I visited was holding an exhibition of the 'National wild life photographer of the year' entries which was fascinating. Really enjoyed my trip to this gem of a museum.

My friend and I were in Brighton for only 5 Hours, we had come on a day excursion from the Midlands by coach. We found ourselves outside Brighton Museum and Art Gallery where there were large signs inviting us to come to the Gallery Cafe for coffee, cake and a whole lot more. We went in, couldn't see how to... More

I loved the museum and wished I had spent more time there, but was trying to fit this and the Pavilion into a few hours. It has a variety of displays, many child friendly, and the additional attraction of the wildlife photography of the year exhibition when I visited. I did find the one Egyptian gallery I visited too cramped,... More

The Brighton Museum and Art Gallery is a nice place to visit, when nearby and already visiting The Royal Pavilion. The museum didn't really have much on display and within fifteen / thirteen minutes it is possible to have finished your tour.
