Brighton Museum & Art Gallery



Brighton Museum & Art Gallery re-opened on 4 May 2002 after being transformed by a £10 million redevelopment.

The museum features state-of-the-art visitor facilities, a series of innovative redesigned galleries and wide-ranging collections brought to life using the latest interpretative techniques.

The museum was founded in the former servants' block and stables of the Royal Pavilion in 1873. Exhibition Galleries include: 20th Century Art & Design, Body, Discovery, Exploring Brighton, Fashion and Style, Fine Art, Images of Brighton, Mr Willett's Popular Pottery, Performance and World Art.

Two Ancient Egypt Galleries have been opened at the museum. Showing the best of the museum's Egyptology collection, with many important, fascinating and rare objects. The new galleries are also filled with lots of fun hands-on activities for children and families. The characters of two Egyptian children introduce young visitors to some of the items, helping children to find out who used them and how, and sound effects include the ritual recital of names of ancient gods.

The Brighton History Centre on the first floor of the Museum provides resources for local and family history research and information on the museum's collections. The Museum also organises an exciting programme of temporary exhibitions and events for adults, children and schools.
