Big thank you to Kirstie, Bridget and Georgie for making our son's first birthday tea party fantastic and lovely memorable experience. The food and service was first class and attention to detail was superb. Everyone was very helpful and would recommend anyone to have celebration there. Thanks again to the manager and staff.

This little museum feels a bit run down compared to its better funded cousin in Brighton and could do with some investment and brightening up. That said, it has some interesting collections - the film gallery and the toys were particularly enjoyable and the temporary exhibition on the theme of 'blue' was also good fun. I wouldn't travel a million... More

We came here for coffee and the staff were very friendly. Afterwards we looked around the museum which was based on the theme of blue. We enjoyed looking round it especially at the old toy collection which took us back to our childhood, and also the films of old Brighton.

We visited this museum over the bank holiday weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact because we ran out of time to see it all on the first day we went back again the next day to see the rest. There is a charming tea room,which although a little pricey, have delicious cakes and a very good brew served in... More

This is a lovely little museum with special events for children. The staff are exceptional, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We had a lovely visit and the person running the making room was particularly kind and helpful.

Very boring, yawwwnnn, the museum collection that is. However if you're into the early rise of film in Hove actualy they have a very good archive upstairs.

Great little museum that has some very interesting things going on in the downstairs galleries. My daughter (and it appears many other kids) has developed an absolute terror of the sleeping wizard in a hammock, above the toy museum on the top floor. He used to snore from time to time but I think the staff have turned him off... More

Lots of hands on, the morning we went There was a special craft area for children up to eight years old. Our granddaughter enjoyed that. My husband was totally fascinated by the assortment of old toys. Will return and spend more time. Enjoyed the snack in the cafe

A really nice little museum that has really worked hard to assemble and attractively display contemporary crafts and included films about their production. The labelling is excellent because it includes notes about the inspiration for the work and the artist's approach which helps enormously with understanding the pieces on display. The toys section of the museum is wonderfully quirky, lots... More
