“Pop in for an easy history brief of Brighton”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Free (donation) entry. Gives a snapshot of the history of Brighton. Central location, so a must drop in if you are in Brighton.

Backpack friendly :-)
Most museums/galleries in the UK do allow people with full backpacks to enter. But shame to those that do not. The British Library is the only place that I have found so far that has problems with backpacks. So name and shame the bad ones I say.

“Shore thing”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Good place to get a different perspective on Brighton. Close to the seafront but miles away in terms of a traditional seaside attraction. I particularly liked the mods and rockers display, along with some of the art nouveau items.

“Almost average, not more...”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Having visited the Pavilion in Brighton, and getting the chance to view grand museums in London, you will not enjoy this small and barely attractive museum unless you have some spare time for an extra visit.

“A gem of a museum!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

For years we wanted to visit the Brighton Museum,but each of our previous visits to Brighton were on a monday,when it was closed.
What a gem of a museum! It is not big but it has an excellent choice of exhibits,whether it it Art Deco,Art Nouveau,antique ceramic,etc..It is well worth a visit which is also free of charge.

“Eclectic and interesting collection”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Well worth taking out a few hours to visit this museum! The positives: collections not too large so you don't feel overwhelmed by the information, museum is free, nice gift shop! I really enjoyed the 'Exploring Brighton' and 'Images of Brighton' galleries which provide interesting information on the history, culture and development of Brighton,
