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

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

Worth a visit, not least because it's free and a nice way to spend an hour or so. The cafe is the star though and very much worth going to for coffee and cake.

Lovely visit and very interesting museum it's well laid out the cafe is very comprehensive stocked and contemporary I have not seen so many tea options! A must see and a good place to visit before or after the Pavillion that takes centre stage in this part of Brighton

The staff were super friendly and it's free to get in. It's pretty small but it's really varied and well maintained. The collection was beautiful and the toy area was really interestingly laid out. Also you can sneakily have sex in the back of the cinema bit. ;) :')

Much better than expected. Situated outside of Hove center it's a quiet oasis of art, collections and technology. A very good camera collection with plenty of information about the early days of moving pictures and colour photography. Some very good presentations and hands on stuff for kids. Worth a visit when in Brighton & Hove.

I visit this gallery every time i go to Brighton (annually/bi-annually) but sadly it never changes...pretty much the same exhibitions all the time and on the rare occasion something different comes along, its pricey...The history of Brighton is really interesting though, definitely worth a couple of hours wandering round.

Hove Museum is lovely and the BLUE! exhibition is well worth a visit. It's free, the staff are lovely and the pretty tea room is a treat.
