Fine Art Gallery improvements

To enable us to install new lighting tracks and fittings quickly and safely, all of the first floor galleries will be closed to the public from Tuesday 7 to Friday 10 March 2017.

Admission to the ground floor galleries will be free to all visitors during this period.

Access to Museum Lab activities will be unaffected, but the Babies in Museums event on 7 March is cancelled.

We apologise for any inconvenience these changes may cause.


There is currently no café in this building. Refreshments are available elsewhere on the Royal Pavilion Estate:

  • Pavilion Tea Company (next to the Royal Pavilion shop)
  • Pavilion Gardens Café (in the Royal Pavilion Garden)
  • Royal Pavilion Tearoom (access via the Royal Pavilion, admission payable)

Please ask a member of staff if you require assistance.

We are currently reviewing our foyer facilities so that we can offer visitors the best possible experience and would welcome your views. Please take a few minutes to complete our online survey.

We regret there will be no catering facilities during this period of review.
