Went specifically to see the Egyptian galleries and they were very well laid out with lots of information and a wide range of exhibits. Did find the constant loop of background voices very annoying. Perhaps not noticeable if you just make a quick visit but for me, an Egyptology student who spent some time in the galleries, if was very... More

This is a superb museum: very richly endowed with art nouveau and deco artefacts, all beautifully displayed. We also went to the Constable exhibition which was excellent and, in my view, exceeded the recent exhibition of Turner at Margate.

I love the assortment of things to see ranging from paintings to costumes, furniture and local history items. Mr Willetts pottery display has interesting pieces and information cards if you want to find out a bit more.

We visited here after touring the Pavilion and ran out of time as we were needing lunch & it was by then nearly 3pm. We looked at the Egyptian exhibition but my kids loved the dressing up in the clothing exhibition most. We liked the Punch & Judy stand too and the interactive sound exhibition. Loads to see & we...

Having read good Tripadvisor reviews, we headed into the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery during our recent visit to the city. The entry fee is resonable and the venue is a good size to be able to visit all the exhibits without feeling overwhelmed. It wasn't especially busy during our visit, so we were able to enjoy all the exhibits... More

well worth the admin charge for all art lovers. I only wish the fantastic pieces they have on show were in my price range :-)

As a Brighton resident you can get free entry with proof of residency but I believe a normal ticket is around £5. It is absolutely worth it. We always take our guests to show them some of Brighton's history as well as changing exhibitions. We have been fortunate enough to see ancient Egyptian artefacts as well as costume displays and...

We had an afternoon off work and were walking past so decided to visit the museum. I have lived in Brighton and Hove for all my life and have only been in the museum a handful of times but have not visited recently. If you are a Brighton and Hove resident you can get free entry into the museum. (we... More

I decided to visit the museum as I hadn't been for quite a while.There are lots of different topics there.Ranging from early Brighton to modern day,furniture costumes and lots more.There is often a special display,when I went it was photography.A nice way to spend a morning or afternoon.Adults and children alike.

The building itself is worth a look see. It's part of the whole Royal Pavilion, which is a magnificient triumph in gorgous and at the same time laugh out loud architecture I have ever seen. The permanent collection is good and fun to look at. The museum puts on special exhibits that are always interesting. The people who run this... More
