Within the Royal Pavilion Estate, the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery forms part of the Grade I-listed Dome complex which is being refurbished through funding by both Heritage and Arts Council lottery bodies. A phased programme of work in the museum is being undertaken to re-display the whole collection, which includes the fine and decorative arts, local history, fashion, and non-western art.

The Arts Team's vision is to restore the architectural integrity and decoration of the Victorian building, while creating a contemporary displayenvironment for the artefacts, using carefully integrated interpretative techniques. The opportunity will also be taken to upgrade environmental conditions in galleries and storage areas.

In addition to the galleries, the project includes the creation of a new principal entrance to the museum, thereby creating a much better relationship with the Royal Pavilion, with which the museum is intimately associated. Public access will be improved and the current education facilities greatly expanded. A 45-seat teaching space will be accommodated in a new timber- framed pavilion extension set in the gardens.

This is part of the Brighton Dome and Museum Project published in aj 12.6.97.
