Went last Monday 25th Jan with 3 year old granddaughter. We had a great time. We were warmly welcomed and given some basic information. The displays are on the first floor and the first room is full of wonderful contemporary craft stuff. There is adult info about processes but more importantly for us, exciting drawers that a small child can... More

You are left ignored in this place but the toys and film gallery steal the show and plenty of history of the town as well.

Great place for a visit. The special exhibitions are just great and we watched a mesmerised party of school children watching the Heath Robinson machines.

We came here because we never had. And unsure of what to expect. It is quite a little gem. Paintings; ceramics (with interesting information on how items are produced); collection of toys (including an unusual table with a glass half globe in the middle - the child can stand there and see all the items on the table); items from...

Interesting if a little dusty and bit of a trek although you can park. On the main road in Hove but only reasonable for the indulgent.

Offering activities and museum pieces viewable for all ages as well as a well curated historic view of Hove back in the ages. We love learning about the history of the different regency period houses and the old... More

Set in a beautiful building, this Museum and Art Gallery is well worth a visit, especially for children. Although we were two adults and still had a fun time! A bonus is entry is free. Lots of rooms containing interesting displays and memorabilia : machines from 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' which can be switched on; toys throughout the decades; art... More

it's a great place for the children but there's nothing in their collection that would attract an adult audience.
