“An eclectic mix of artefacts”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Don't miss the Jeff Koons exhibition, but if you do, the late 19th and twentieth century exhibits are well worth seeing. Other rooms we enjoyed included the history of brighton as a tourist resort. More could have been made of the history of the piers and brighton as a film location.

“Great museum”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We were drawn in by the current Jeff Koons exhibition, but ended up spending a few hours browsing around the different spaces. Particularly loved the furniture hall, but really enjoyed it all. Definitely recommend it.

Reviewed August 26, 2013

Very nice for a stroll about, this gallery. Loved it alot I must say and the muesum have some nice bits to look at too. I particulary liked the tea room, its expensive, but worth every penny! Quality of the tea and food is top notch! Great for an afternoon in Brighton!

“Great place to pop in for an hour”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Worth a visit. I always take my visitors and they all appreciate the choices made by the curators.
It is not for a day but after a walk in the gardens it is worth a free visit.

“Impressive only on the outside”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

What a shame that the interior is so piecemeal. There are a few rooms of exhibits that look as though they have been sent out on tour from the London museums, but have little or no relevance to the building itself. Where are the life and times of George IV and his architectural legacy and decorative schemes? Outside the whole structure is painted cream and the grounds are poorly kept. It reflects badly on Brighton that they are not maintaining it in the manner it deserves.
