“Small but interesting museum, fantastic cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

Worth a visit, not least because it's free and a nice way to spend an hour or so. The cafe is the star though and very much worth going to for coffee and cake.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

Lovely visit and very interesting museum it's well laid out the cafe is very comprehensive stocked and contemporary I have not seen so many tea options! A must see and a good place to visit before or after the Pavillion that takes centre stage in this part of Brighton

“Woah there, mister Hove museum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

The staff were super friendly and it's free to get in. It's pretty small but it's really varied and well maintained. The collection was beautiful and the toy area was really interestingly laid out. Also you can sneakily have sex in the back of the cinema bit. ;) :')

“Absorbing couple of hours”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

Much better than expected. Situated outside of Hove center it's a quiet oasis of art, collections and technology. A very good camera collection with plenty of information about the early days of moving pictures and colour photography. Some very good presentations and hands on stuff for kids. Worth a visit when in Brighton & Hove.
