Hove Museum and Art Gallery

Free

The city is formally known as the City of Brighton and Hove and while most attractions here are in Brighton, the Hove Museum and Art Gallery is in Hove, actually.

What to see at the Hove Museum and Art Gallery

The museum is located inside Brooker Hall, a 19th-century villa in Hove.

The museum has exhibits about local history. Exhibits at the museum include:

  • A gallery devoted to toys with a collection of dolls, teddy bears and mechanical toys
  • Displays about early cinema from the 1890s to the 1900s.
  • One of the finest craft collections in the United Kingdom.

Considering that it is called the Hove Museum and Art Gallery, there is not a great deal of art here.

Visiting the Hove Museum and Art Gallery

The Hove Museum and Art Gallery is in a residential area of Hove but it has excellent transport connections to other parts of the Brighton area and you can walk into the centre of Brighton in around half an hour. Bus routes 1, 1A, 6 and 71 take around seven minutes to get into the centre of Brighton with buses running every five minutes or so.

The museum is open every day except Wednesdays. Admission to the museum is free of charge although there is sometimes a charge to visit temporary exhibitions.

The museum is fully wheelchair accessible.

Free Wi-Fi wireless internet access is available throughout the museum.

The museum has a gift shop. It no longer has its own cafe but there a pub around the corner (The Connaught) and there are places to eat and drink just a few minutes walk up the road.
