Amazing collection of pieces from wide variety of different time periods. Very cheap for the quality of the displays and buying a ticket allows you access for the year. Great way to spend an afternoon would highly recommend.

Great museum to visit when you're in the city; good variety across most of the exhibits - especially loved the Bowie exhibit, told a great story and featured a lot of photos I hadn't seen before. Interesting exhibit on Brighton's LGBTQ history too!

The architecture is really cool and the museum's collection is quite wide ranging, if not random. I gave it 3 stars just because I found the curation to be in need of improvement. For example, some of the paintings have detailed descriptions while others, namely the ones with Black subjects, have little detail and don't offer proper contextualization. Another thing I noticed is that for the portraits with Black subjects, the name on the description has been changed to remove derogatory racial names, but the plaque on the frame itself still contains the original name. Since there is no accompanying text to further describe this choice, it does little to correct past racism. Another example that comes to mind is the way the texts highlight the various Asian and African inspirations behind some of the works by Western artists, but still frames these techniques as Western innovation instead of centering the non-Western influences as the originators of the designs and techniques. I enjoyed the chair collection and loved learning about Brighton's LGBTQ history!

Beautiful main exhibition, including funny pottery, ancient people reconstructed, two ancient Egypt rooms and art nouveau room with a lot of furniture and interior stuff, also decorated with a very peculiar choice of paintings. Also a little bit on woman, LGBTQ history, mods Vs rockers and history of Brighton and Hove. Upstairs there are exhibitions about theatre, fashion, David Bowie, etc. Highly recommended, not too many people, COVID safe and not too much to see, what could be a good thing if you're not into British museum / the Met style of exhibitions.

Informative, has a good layout. My yeen girls really enjoyed the fashion exhibition and the Bowie exhibition.
