When we visited they had an exhibition on aliens and zombie art work which was fun. I also enjoyed the permanent exhibitions on cinema (I didn't realise Brighton was the centre of cinematography at the end of the 19th century) and on children's toys. The...More

This small museum has some interesting seasonal exhibitions, and some permanent exhibits. The toy section brought back lots of memories, and the exhibit on Hove’s links to early cinema was fascinating. Some of the exhibits are slightly confusing in layout.

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.
