visited in the school holidays with my 7 year old grand daughter. We hadn't realised there was a free craft session going on for children but we booked and she spent a very happy time making things. The museum was interesting too but we were so disappointed with the cafe we went outside and had lunch further up the road.

I stopped here today on the Snow Dog trail. I would say this place is great and learnt a lot about local life and History. Well worth a stop by.

Don't miss a permanent small selection on display of the important Barnes Pre-Cinema and early photography collection on the first floor. Amazing lift. Take the lift rather than the stairs. Ground floor changing exhibitions. Child friendly. Museum closes at 5.00 pm. Tearoom closes at 4.30. Cakes and tea cakes/crumpets for tea. Light lunches. Filter coffee only £1.60 from memory and...

I stopped here today on the Snow Dog trail. I've visited often in the past to have a cup of tea in their lovely tea room with their beautiful collection of old teapots. Today was the first time I had looked at the exhibits, although very briefly, and now I intend to return and enjoy it at leisure because what... More

We were there last Sunday and it was my first time there. The Hove museum is a small museum filled with incredible things. The kids will love it as it has features for everyone and it old and new toys. The cinema bit was pretty impressive too as I had literally no idea that Brighton had been that big in... More

I must admit that I ended up here by ‘accident’, looking to hunt down and photograph the Snow dogs (a beautiful one sitting in the front garden) and Snow Pups (five sitting in one of the museum rooms) but was thrilled to discover this little gem… OK – you will not find any Picassos, Rembrandts or Botticellis… but what you...

This little local museum is great for kids and has an activity room but it's a convenient local tea/coffee shop with a rather good selection of cakes and pastries. The tea room also hosts a museum collection of teapots and other China. There is an outside sitting area in the gardens. You don't have to visit the museum to enjoy... More

I love this place for either lunch or just coffee and cakes. It is relaxing and a great place to meet up with friends. If hey have children then the museum is also a great place to go round to keep them occupied as well. Even when sitting down there is a separate place fro them to quietly play in.... More
