The Museum has a  27 foot  traditional Sussex fishing boat  as its centrepiece.When Brighton became a tourist town many of the fishermen began scrubbing down their boats (called punts)  after fishing and turn them into pleasure boats for visitors. In the Museum there are old films, photographs, paintings and memorabilia of Brighton seafront life. A new Gallery has items about the West Pier, Brighton Swimming Club and Punch and Judy.
