Don't miss a permanent small selection on display of the important Barnes Pre-Cinema and early photography collection on the first floor. Amazing lift. Take the lift rather than the stairs. Ground floor changing exhibitions. Child friendly. Museum closes at 5.00 pm. Tearoom closes at 4.30. Cakes and tea cakes/crumpets for tea. Light lunches. Filter coffee only £1.60 from memory and...

I stopped here today on the Snow Dog trail. I've visited often in the past to have a cup of tea in their lovely tea room with their beautiful collection of old teapots. Today was the first time I had looked at the exhibits, although very briefly, and now I intend to return and enjoy it at leisure because what... More

We were there last Sunday and it was my first time there. The Hove museum is a small museum filled with incredible things. The kids will love it as it has features for everyone and it old and new toys. The cinema bit was pretty impressive too as I had literally no idea that Brighton had been that big in... More

I must admit that I ended up here by ‘accident’, looking to hunt down and photograph the Snow dogs (a beautiful one sitting in the front garden) and Snow Pups (five sitting in one of the museum rooms) but was thrilled to discover this little gem… OK – you will not find any Picassos, Rembrandts or Botticellis… but what you...

This little local museum is great for kids and has an activity room but it's a convenient local tea/coffee shop with a rather good selection of cakes and pastries. The tea room also hosts a museum collection of teapots and other China. There is an outside sitting area in the gardens. You don't have to visit the museum to enjoy... More

I love this place for either lunch or just coffee and cakes. It is relaxing and a great place to meet up with friends. If hey have children then the museum is also a great place to go round to keep them occupied as well. Even when sitting down there is a separate place fro them to quietly play in.... More

My children loved seeing all of the old toys and cinema stuff. Good level of interactivity for youngsters and friendly staff. Hope to go back again and try the cafe.

Parked the car (&paid the fee!) on the street . Walked into museum and was greeted by the guy at the desk with a warm "Good Morning do you need any guidance?" "Only to your coffee & cakes" was my reply. Glad he knew where they were as I was thirsty. What a little gem...... good coffee & selection of... More

It's in an attractive Victorian building in a leafy part of town. However on entering I might have been forgiven for wondering where the museum was. To my right I stepped into the first of two rooms, the most striking exhibit in which was a stuffed Raven. The second room displayed some remarkably amateurish drawings of birds. Stepping back to...
