“Great Little Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2013

A great little museum on the seafront that's bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside. It's filled with lots about the local fishing industry and the development of the seafront with lots of exhibits, intelligently arranged and well-labelled, as well as a good video on a continuous loop. Well worth an hour or so of anybody's time and it's free!

“A lot of Informations but a little boring...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

The museum is small, I appreciated it also because is free, it has a lot of informations and old pictures but i think it needs a restiling and some more "objects" not only pictures and texts....

“lots of info and free!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

I popped in on the off chance and was pleasantly supplied. It is free and apparently has seasonal exhibitions such as Punch & Judy and lots of history about Brighton and the sea.

There is a pot for donations and lots of information and a nice visit.

“Definitely worth a visit and it is free”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

We have been to brighton many times but had never been into this small museum tucked in the arches on the seafront to the west of the pier. The museum is more spacious inside than you would think and includes all sorts of exhibits covering fishing history in and around the Brighton area. There is a boat to look in, models, equipment and a video to watch. This is a great place for kids as well as adults and could easily occupy the best part of an hour especially if the weather is cold or wet. Entrance is free but we left a donation.

“step back in time!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

Free to go in with donations welcome, great for a quick look & the kids loved the life size old fishing boat they can climb up into.
Lots of local history to see and learn, a really nice place to vist as you pass by but not a place to expect too much from or plan a trip too.
A great 10 min diversion from the seafront rides!
