“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2012

I was on a course here so sadly didn't get much time to view the Museum and Art Gallery, though what I did see on my walk through it was fabulous. I want to return to take a better look around.

“Better than trudging around London”

Quirky, funky and fantastic displays from the theatre royal, spent a summer going around london museums that were packed and not inspiring came back to Brighton's museum and thought it was so much better!!!

“Excellent regional museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

Really lovely museum - strong collections which were well presented and interpreted (especially the section on holidays and day trips). The display of porcelain was very well done: I've seen many poor attempts at this elsewhere, but this is one of the best (interesting to all). Although quite small it covered a lot of material which was presented very well by the curatorial team. The traditional art collection is a little uninspiring (but that may just be my taste). I didn't visit the cafe but it appeared to be a pleasant space. Many museums in places such as Brighton are not especially thrilling - either child focused or old fashioned. This is really worth a visit: I hope the staff from the Science Museum (in London)come along one day to see how it should be done!
