Brighton Museum and Art Gallery

Peruse the fine art collections and learn about the history of this progressive seaside city through this museum’s pictures and displays.

Brighton Museum and Art Gallery is an important cultural institution in a stately mansion of the Pavilion Gardens. It combines art and history to tell the story of Brighton and the world today.

Admire the stunning building that houses the museum. It was initially built for the Prince of Wales and was completed in 1805. Peruse its grand halls to admire the art on display. Explore the Fine Art section to see exquisite paintings. Look through the 20th-Century Art and Design hall to admire great modern artists, such as Salvador Dalí. This room is spacious and full of surreal objects, including the Mae West’s Lips sofa and other bizarre furniture.

See the exhibits dedicated to the city, including Images of Brighton and Exploring Brighton. These halls will teach you about this charming city’s history through its industry and art. The black-and-white pictures bring the seaside resort town of the 20th century back to life.

Brighton is a progressive city with a strong bond with the gay community, which is reflected in the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer) Museum Trail. Follow this collection of works within the museum to appreciate an often hidden perspective.

Peruse the museum shop in the foyer beside the building’s entrance. It is packed with books, cards and a great range of gifts. Take a break from the art in the stunning gardens of the Royal Pavilion or walk 5 minutes to the beach.

The museum’s structure was originally intended to hold tennis courts and was home to cavalry barracks before being turned into its current form.

The museum has an admission fee, with a discount for kids and families and concessions for students, seniors and disabled people. Local residents with proof of residence enter for free. Visit Tuesday through Sunday from morning until late afternoon.

Brighton Museum and Art Gallery stands in the Pavilion Gardens in the center of the city. Ride a bus from many spots around Brighton to reach the area. The small city center is easy to traverse on foot.
