We came across the Booth Museum by accident having visited the (excellent) Brighton Open Air Theatre directly opposite. A very interesting couple of hours spent here, but I had to keep reminding myself that this is a typical Victorian collection because I found some displays...More

We visited on a Saturday and had a great time. It is crammed full of unusual and interesting exhibits - we would definitely go again. We were surprised it was free as it was bigger than expected, definitely worth a visit.

I have been going here with my daughter for many years. A fascinating collection of taxidermy animals, insects and birds. Free entry (donations) and a good way to spend a couple of hours with or without kids..

Our boys loved visiting Booth Museum. A little further out than most activities that Brighton has to offer. However it is easy to get to. We need more museums in Sussex.

I love this little place, it's a classic cornucopia of corpsical creatures for your intrigue and delight. They also lend out pieces for study and art.

I went there as a small boy, some 70 years ago. It has hardly changed. The birds are just a bit dustier and more bedrgaggled.

The exhibits have not changed since the 1860s, and are all the more interesting for that. New items have been introduced, and are well presented. All very interesting and well labelled. And it’s free!! Brilliant for children,particularly the shop which has really good quality fossils...More
