Brighton Museum & Art Gallery
You will be pleasantly surprised in this museum as you journey from Ancient Egypt to Victorian and modern Brighton.
Take a brief guided tour of the LGBTQ trail, where you will see many objects with an LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer) connection.
Brighton & Hove is often referred to as the gay capital of the UK, and it is also known as a fun-loving, tolerant and quirky city. The Brighton Gallery, located in the museum, looks at these associations with the city, but you will also learn about Brighton’s past, such as why fishing was important in the Medieval times, and how the city was re-invented as a health resort in the 1700s.
Take a stroll to the Performance Gallery which displays props, costumes and sets which were left behind after performances, and in the Fashion & Style Gallery, you will see costumes associated with George IV and also to more modern alternative style clothing. And if you are into art, there is a spectacular Fine Art Gallery on the first floor near the café.
Brighton Museum, set in beautiful Pavilion Gardens, makes a great place to spend a few hours on a sunny or a rainy day.
