  • Beautiful construction architectural, looks like a Palace from outside. It even has a skating rink ice enabling it in winter. Very full and few blocks from Brighton Pier and Sea Life!

  • Very interesting displays quite liked looking at old maps of Brighton. Price to get in was very reasonable aswell. 
  • The building from the outside has a charm that invites to discovery. Once paid your admission ticket you will discover this sort of Museum that we wonder if he still has a reason to stay open.

  • A local museum that packs a real punch. Arts and Crafts. Ancient and local history. Design and Fashion. Special Exhibits. The two Brighton Galleries are a fun overview of our diverse City - past and present. Set in beautiful gardens. Free admission for local residents.
  • Nice place to spend an hour or two. Interesting history of Brighton section. Modern design and fashion exhibitions are good. The art gallery good, there are some nice pre-Raphaelite paintings. Staff are friendly. Worth it for £5.20.
  • It offers a vast collection, from ancient Egypt to modern art (including the famous lips sofa by Salvador Dalí). There is also a good coverage of the history of Brighton and its influences.
  • A fanastic building inside and out. The ticket may be a bit pricey (download the app for a quid off), but it's worth it once to see the grandeur of the interiors.
  • It's a shame but makes sense that entry is paid-for now, but still a nice little museum. Could do with more history on Brighton, though.
