Situated near the Royal Pavilion, this museum has a surprisingly eclectic collection of all manner of arts and displays with each room enticing you in and captivating your attention. A very enjoyable experience and well worth a visit.

The Egyptian exhibition was fantastic, I enjoyed reading about the artifacts and seeing the mummified animals. There are great little interactive stations for children to make the most out of...

This museum is located right near the Royal Pavilion through the gardens which smell strongly of urine and are full of bold squirrels which run up to you because the locals have trained them to take peanuts from their hands (so an old lady told us). When you enter you are faced with a large bright shop with the usual... More

It's a good museum with things about Egipt, is free and near to good gardens. Is not the kind of museum where you find a lot of information but it's interesting.

The Museum is closed on Mondays apart from Bank Holidays and is Free and near the Royal Pavilion. It is quite impressive when you walk in where there is a display of furniture from different eras. There are some lovely pieces of porcelain and paintings. It was interesting reading about the history of Brighton and its growth and how it... More

Did enjoy viewing the First World War exhibition based on accounts of local people. Very poignant and well presented. The other galleries were not for us and probably more of a rainy day venue. Staff in coffee shop not interested in customers, busy talking to each other.
