I have been going here with my daughter for many years. A fascinating collection of taxidermy animals, insects and birds. Free entry (donations) and a good way to spend a couple of hours with or without kids..

Our boys loved visiting Booth Museum. A little further out than most activities that Brighton has to offer. However it is easy to get to. We need more museums in Sussex.

I love this little place, it's a classic cornucopia of corpsical creatures for your intrigue and delight. They also lend out pieces for study and art.
