  • went to the fashion cities Africa exhibition and really enjoyed it. the design and layout was great. thought i might've been a bit bigger but i wasn't disappointed.
  • Great museum, historic location, café now in the shop at the front; convenient. Fantastic unexpected exhibition of African fashion.
  • Great place, ideal if raining, good place to meet, cafe and food, kids activities, specially in holiday season.
  • 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.
  • 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.
