  • Brighton Museum is a wonderful small museum with a most impressive opening gallery full of art deco wonders. Great place for kids, too. My latest visit was with a very intelligent and curious 7 year old who had a great time.
  • Great trip with family down here. Museum was great and a lot to see. Pretty good museum.
