A short #27 bus ride from the clock tower. It is associated with Brighton's main museum. Mainly birds plus interesting animal skeletons and some local minerals on display. Tourist shop prices there were quite reasonable!

My grandson took me here as he knows how much i like birds! It is a great venue on a rainy day. Good that it is free....you can leave a donation if you wish. Very good for young kids to keep them busy and full of informations. Will go again.

It's such a delightfully old-fashioned museum, with a very Victorian feel to it. The boxed bat skeletons are completely bizarre and loved them. I haven't been for a while but heading back very soon.

Been here several times and always spot something new like stepping back in time a old type of museum but if you a bit squeamish maybe not the place to go

If you think for a good natural museum, as a German you directly think to the Museum König in Bonn or the Senckenberg-Museum in Frankfurt, two of the best Museums in Germany I would say. But the Booth Museum of Natural History is in my opinion, in the same line. It is absolutely awesome. Of course it it quite small... More

Great little museum that has been in operation for years. The personal collection amalgamated here is impressive, if not a little obscene if it was collected today! Nevertheless there is lots to look at and learn. A chance to see some animals up close that you probably wouldn't get to see in the wild. Nice to have a wander around... More

Well worth a visit. I went here during the Snow dog tour and was surprise just by how many different types of birds they had.

This museum is small. So don't expect a full day of activity. It is essentially a taxidermist's dream. Loads of cases full of an enormous variety of stuffed animals, displayed around the edges of the building and an interactive section through the middle. Worth a look.
