About

Hove Museum & Art Gallery is one of the most family friendly and accessible museums in the south east.

Children and families will enjoy the interactive toy gallery, designed with the theme of a wizard's attic. Highlights include a mock up of the Wizard's workshop for broken toys and a bedroom split by time, half modern-day and half Victorian.

Hove's role in the birth of cinema is celebrated in the film gallery with working optical toys, magic lanterns and cameras. The gallery features the pioneering Hove film-makers of the 1890s and 1900s, including footage of their films.

Two contemporary craft galleries display the Southern and South East Arts Craft Collection. The main craft gallery showcases star objects from the collection and introduces some of the key craft pioneers of the 20th century. The second gallery explores the process of craft making.

The story of Hove and Portslade from prehistoric times to the present day is explored in the local history gallery, with displays including Hove's famous prehistoric Amber Cup.

The paintings gallery features changing displays drawn from the Museum's fine art collections.

For more information about the galleries, facilities, exhibitions and associated activities, telephone (03000) 290900. The Hove Museum pages on www.brightonmuseums.org.uk also have lots of background information.
