   BRIGHTON MUSEUM & ART GALLERY
 
4 May 2002 saw the reopening of Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, transformed by a 10 million redevelopment, with a complete redisplay of its rich and diverse collections.

Objects are displayed in stimulating contexts with a wide range of interpretative techniques, including the latest interactive information technology.

New facilities include: the Museum entrance in the Royal Pavilion gardens with a spacious foyer, coffee shop and museum shop; improved disabled access; new education facilities with an art room and a dedicated education 'pavilion'. The Museum has worked with community groups to broaden access to its collections and services. A Hindu shrine in the World Art Gallery created with the local Gujerati community, and Oral histories of local people are examples of these collaborations.
