Being free entry I guess I should not comment on the content too much. There are some interesting pieces and information in the two rooms that house the museum.

I called in during a rainstorm and spent 35-40 minutes walking slowly through the two rooms. The content is not all fishing related, much of the material is more generally about the seaside aspects of the town (swimming contests, mods v rockers). Its not a...More

This old fashioned museum is a museum of museums.That is not derogative in any way. The displays are honest and the tales are touching. Well worth a stop out of the sun or rain for 20 minutes or more.

Interesting small museum. No entry fee and well worth a look if you're passing this part of the beach. Not as good as Hastings Fishing Museum, but some good exhibits and information.

We found this place as we walked along the beach. A small museum with a nice display and it’s free. Worth a visit

This is a fascinating museum which tracks the history of Brighton fishing. The exhibition is interesting and the old photographs amazing. Entrance is free and the volunteers ask for a donation which they greatly deserve.
