The Museum has an incredible permanent collection of items from Brighton's history, an excellent 20th Century gallery, a great ceramics collection, interesting paintings and a good fashion gallery. A really great revolving series of special exhibitions adds to the interest....recently Constable in Brighton, Jane Austen...More

I stumbled across this museum when I was trying to escape the rain. The low cost of entry (£5.20) was good value for money as there were lots of interesting artefacts-and exhibits. Enjoy!

At £5.50 each this is pricey museum. There are a few good exhibits - Dali and Picasso works when we went. Lots of the rooms are not open and water leaks into the corridor. An interesting festival/carnival exhibit. Altogether a bit disappointing.

combined ticket available for both the Gallery and Royal Pavilion. This allowed us access to the Exhibition at no extra cost.

What a thoughtful and emotional exhibition on gender and being transgender. Such a great exhibition and very important - recommend to all to go and take a look!

We went specifically to view the Gluck Exhibition and we were very impressed, what an amazing artist. The museum has a good range of history both local and national, we spent a couple of hours and came out inspired.
