Great museum with lots of interesting exhibits. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition was on when I visited but I was fortunate enough to arrive just as the 'bitesize talk' was about to start - so glad I did! Make sure you visit the tea rooms as well which serves tea in proper silver tea pots!

The museum used to be free enter but now you have to pay which I think is bad if you are a regular to the museum. The gift shop is still worth a look!

My partner and I are regular visitors to the Brighton Museum and just love it. A treasure trove of interesting exhibits and plenty of history about Brighton. We've seen all there is to see now (several times over...) but just keep coming back for the delightful little cafe upstairs. Situated on the balcony you get a lovely view down across... More

This was a lucky chance for us. This Museum is packed to the rafters with items to look at. I was very impressed with the rich History of the Area. really enjoyed our Tour around here and this is a must stop.

This is a really interesting and somewhat quirky museum. Beautiful furniture, costumes from performance around the world, a wonderful Emit mobile sculpture. China and pottery, photos and history of Brighton. A good place to visit.
