One beautifully preserved boat, some other bits and pieces, and a lot of black and white photographs on the walls. Worth dropping in from the beach to have a quick look round.

A lovely place to pop into when walking along the seafront. It's a reminder of how life used to be here, fascinating and touching. It's free and well worth exploring.

Very interesting local fishing museum, right on the beach. It's full of memorabilia and artefacts about the local fishing community but also about Brighton beach and its holiday makers since the 19th century. Quite fun and very instructive. A must if you want to understand Brighton's past and its future.

This small museum shows what fishing used to be like for the local area and houses various artifacts. Worth some of your time if you are passing and of course if you like fishing or have anything to do with fishing then a must for you. It is free to look around.

With it being free one can not complain. But just because it's free doesn't mean it's good. There was a lot of stuff without signs and a few paintings had fallen over. But if you have some free time and your on the beach then pop down.

Very good place to bring children for a brief but educational visit. Once finished there the beech is nearby.

A quirky little collection of historic photos and memorabilia relating to the fishermen of Brighton. It's a shame more people don't look around and maybe leave a few pence in the donation box. See what the beach and seafront was like before all the amusements and bars arrived.

After being told that there was a charge at the Art Gallery it was great to find the Fishing Museum to be free. Nice little museum, take time to look at the Dunkerk Medal.

I visited this again yesterday.In the first half I found plaques that were awarded to boats that sailed to Dunkirk in 1940 ,also the stories of some of the boat owners who were involved in the evacuation.Of great interest.
