The museum's Constable exhibition was my reason/excuse for doing a Brighton day trip and it didn't disappoint. There are two large rooms of mainly on-the-spot oil sketches made during Constable's summer stays in Brighton and they are a great lesson in how he built up...More

I went today to this well-curated exhibition showing the sketches and paintings this painter did in the 1820's of Brighton and the surrounding countryside. There are audio-guides and very thorough notes with the exhibits and the pictures are in my opinion his best; worth a...More

It is a small, comfortable building with many gorgeous pieces on display. I loved the fact that there are many different types of art on show i.e. fashion, sculptures, oil paintings etc as i've not had that experience before. The price was very reasonable also.

While not really a fan of 18th and 19th century art, the Constables of the 1820s were real eye openers for us. To see one of Brittain's finest experimenting with light, colour, texture, especially his clouds, was well worth the visit. The collection of 1890...More

We visited using the combined ticket purchased at the Pavilion intent on just seeing the special John Constable exhibition. However several of the permanent galleries are very good indeed. We particularly liked the modern furniture with examples from most of the classic C20 designers.

We visited to view the Constable exhibition which was fantastic. You have to walk through some of the museum to reach the temporary ones and there is a fantastic amount to see in here from art deco to theatre props. It may be small but...More

Our 5yo loved this museum, and almost cried when we had to leave. There's a great activity kit to borrow with a proper torch, magnifying glass, colouring kit, map, compass, special bag... The list goes on. She adored getting the bits out and using them...More
