We visited the My Favorite Toy exibition, the kids loved looking at all the toys old and new, and even though the museum is fairly small they had got alot in, with lots of lovely interactive stuff for the children to do.

From reading the reviews on here it appears that most people (like us) only go to the Hove museum when it is raining for "something to do". This is such a shame as it should be a "must do" outing rather than one of last resort.
We all know that Hove is an amazing place to live and visit, much classier and cultured than it's bigger brother Brighton ;). However, after visiting this museum we find out there is more to Hove than meets the eye. For example, how many of us knew that one of the first ever film studios was in our St Anne Wells garden?
The museum itself is set in a beautiful mansion house and whilst the museum is rather compact, they have used all the space available really well. The ground floor houses changing exhibitions. Currently it is about toys of our past... It is quite a strange feeling when toys from your own childhood are put in museums! Like the whole of the museum the exhibitions have been designed to appeal to children as well as adults and are as interactive as you can expect from a museum of this size. Upstairs is a mixture of modern craft, childhood toys, paintings, the history of Hove (date your own house) and also a wonderful exhibition of the birth of film making which took place right on our door step.
Friendly staff and a charming tea room serving delicious cakes top it all off. We had a great afternoon. Oh and it's free!
My little tip would be to go during school time to avoid children!!!!

Most do not realise that Hove was one of the areas of prime importantance in the development of moving images. The skill of the early film makes at the end of the 19th is a relevantion.
