An excellent place to visit in conjunction with a visit to the Pavilion. (Our museum ticket included visits to the Pavilion and Preston Manor). The museum gives visitors a peak into the opulent life in Brighton during the 18th and 19th century.

This is a very underrated museum that is quirky in an old fashioned way. Well worth a diversion for an hours visit. Great toys and also good display on film.

I love this little Museum/Gallery - it's full of truly lovely things, quirky old films of Brighton in a tiny cinema, old toys, a scorpion (you'll need to go to find out more), beautiful ceramics in the cafe and, of course, paintings.

If you're in the area and have an hour or so to spare you'd do worse than to pay a visit here. A wonderfully quirky museum. Not slick but friendly and very interesting.

It's not a museum with lots of technology or things for the kids to twist or fiddle with. What it is...an interesting and quirky Victorian museum set over several floors. There are delightful exhibits including puppets, ceramics, art, history of Hove and film...a mixture of...More

Beautiful and inspiring contemporary and historic art and crafts. A toy section that will make you remember parts of your childhood that you had forgotten. Fascinating social history via the film section. Helpful, friendly staff. Just wish there had been postcards to buy of more...More
