“step back in time!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Free to go in with donations welcome, great for a quick look & the kids loved the life size old fishing boat they can climb up into.
Lots of local history to see and learn, a really nice place to vist as you pass by but not a place to expect too much from or plan a trip too.
A great 10 min diversion from the seafront rides!

“Little seafront gem”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

I love the fishing museum. Its a lovely little building with lots of intetesting artifacts to photograph and discover. Its free and is just a nice thing to do when walking along the sea front. They sell locally freshly caught fish next door which adds to the experiance. Its a nice part of the seafront. My favourite. Its not something youd plan to do especially to visit.but it is a really nice little treat when you are in the area.

“Take a look inside”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

This is a very small museum on the seafront. It's free to go in but there is a big container where you can make a donation just inside the door.

There is a display of old Punch & Judy puppets in a glass case & lots to read about how the show first became popular in seaside resorts.

There is very interesting film footage of days at Brighton seafront which was filmed over several decades so the museum is not just about fishing.

It's definitely worth spending a while in here if you are passing by.

“just browsing sea front”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

This place is so interesting. Continuous running old black and white videos showing the fishing in the area and with people talking. It was free and I would recommend to anyone even if you do not fish (I don't). I think there is a box for donations.
