Brighton Museum & Art Gallery 

Brighton Museum & Art Gallery is one of the country's leading regional museums. In May 2002, transformed by a £10 million redevelopment, it reopened with a complete redisplay of its rich and diverse collections. Exhibits are shown in stimulating contexts with a wide range of interpretative techniques, including the latest interactive information technology.

The transformed Museum & Art Gallery included: 20th Century Art and Design, Fashion & Style, Body, World Art, Performance, Mr Willett's Popular Pottery, the Fine Art Galleries, Exploring Brighton and Images of Brighton and Discovery.
