This place is full of stuffed animals so if you don't like that don't go but if you're okay with that it really is fascinating and beautiful and of historical interest.
interesting museum, however it felt extremely creepy and unnerving walking through hundreds of glaring birds. ew. staff were extremely pleasant
Teenage son loved it (as much as a teenager enthuses and loves anything) 11 year old daughter disturbed by it! Parents enjoyed it - hidden gem of Brighton. Free and worth an afternoon or morning visit.
I have visited here numerous times over the years and enjoyed the exhibits etc. This year was no exception, apart from my now teenage daughter being appalled by the 'stuffed animals' and creatures in jars.

The Booth museum houses a grand display of taxidermy birds, all sitting in little cubicles decorated with props and grasses found in their natural Habitats. It's fascinating. Out the back they have a skeleton collection... 更多
