Closures

The Booth Museum will be closed from Monday 2 to Friday 6 March 2020 for essential maintenance. The museum will re-open on Saturday 7 March at 10am.

All of the Royal Pavilion & Museums buildings will be closed on 30 & 31 March 2020 as we get ready for the next exciting new chapter in our history as we become a charitable trust. The Royal Pavilion & Museums have been engaging people with our extraordinary buildings and collections for over 165 years. The move to Trust will ensure that we can safeguard these precious assets for future generations.

We will be closing the following buildings for 2 days for staff training and to install new computer equipment and services. We may also be unable to respond to phone calls and emails over this period.We will re-open on 1 April 2020 as the Royal Pavilion & Museums Trust.

The buildings that will be closing temporarily are:
The Royal Pavilion
Brighton Museum & Art Gallery
Hove Museum & Art Gallery (re-opens 2 April)
