Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, part 1
While I was killing time in Brighton yesterday afternoon, I went into the Musuem and Art Gallery. I hadn't been there for months. It was nice and warm! (Outside it was positively icy)
As provincial museums go, this Museum is on the small side, but to be fair, there is a large detached exhibition of natural history in the Booth Museum some distance off, and if the two were combined in one building the total impact would be almost comparable to Bristol. There were several new things to see at this main site. Some of the exhibits were to do with the rapid development of Brighton as a resort town from the Regency Period, and a few of the displays are shown above.
