  • The Brighton Museum and Art Gallery is situated right next to the Brighton Royal Pavilion. It has a cheaper entry fee compared to the Roy Pavilion. This Museum has a wide range of historic artefacts from Pharaohs to 'modern' history and links to LGBT too. These are especially interesting to see and read about if you don't know a large amount about its origins. If you do have children with you there are some child friendly areas such as Lego box upstairs and at the moment, there is a Snowman film being showed where you can watch with your children and they can draw some snowmen too!
  • People who are interested in museums will like it. 6 pounds for the entrance. Many things to see in the museum. Good place to visit. Outside the museum there is also a garden when we can relax.
