I love all the little places in Brighton and Hove that the general tourist doesn’t know about and the Hove Museum is 1of them.
It’s a favourite for its cafe (sadly the cafe has been shut down!) and its displays.
Not as big as the Brighton Museum, but it has local charm. It’s a great place to bring kids, as they have a special permanent display for them upstairs, which is great fun.
What’s in store…
There is a good display on the local history of how Hove came about, plus a great exhibition on the creation and development on film – a subject which is a personal favourite. They even have a little cinema to watch old black and white movies on.
For the adults, they have revolving exhibitions of art on various themes. It’s a nice afternoon well spent, especially if you indulge in the cafe fare. The cafe is really bright and the staff are friendly.
There small gift shop sells all sorts, but quite unique gifts, so it’s
worth a quick look.
When you have the time and the weather isn’t great or you are looking for a lovely afternoon tea, you can’t go too wrong to go to the Hove Museum.
