Brighton & Hove Albion's stunning museum - located above the Seagulls Store and next to Dick's Bar - opened its doors to the general public for the first time today.

The museum is already part of the Albion stadium tour, and in January curator and club historian Tim Carder revealed a number of highlights that will ‘wow’ visitors.

He told seagulls.co.uk, "We have some real gems for the shirt aficionados, with more to come. There are a couple of impressive trophies that supporters will never have seen too – I could go on for ages!

"One of my favourites is the headboard from the Seagulls Express train that took me and hundreds of others to away games in the late 1970s.

"Probably the biggest ‘wow factor‘ though belongs to the supremely detailed scale models by the multi-talented Alan Budgen – although I do claim credit for the floodlights!

"Youngsters will certainly like the Goldstone turnstile with its evocative ‘clickety-clack’, and admire the models.

"Older fans will recall many of the exhibits fondly – and there are seats to rest any weary legs! I hope fans of all ages and experience will enjoy having a go on our Albion Quiz machine.

"The aim was to educate, inform and entertain. Younger fans may not realise the depths to which this club sank less than two decades ago. It’s a story that needs telling and must never be forgotten. It’s a story that inspires."
The museum also features a number of video films, featuring various periods in the club's history, including the 1983 FA Cup run, the final season at the Goldstone and the fight for the new stadium.
 
The opening times are as follows:
 
Monday:  2pm-6pm
Tuesday: 10am-2pm
Wednesday: 2pm-6pm
Thursday: 10am-2pm
Saturday (non-matchday):10am-2pm

We would advise allowing at least one hour to view the museum, and therefore please note that the last admission is one hour before closing.

A general admission ticket will need to be collected from the ticket office and shown alongside your season-ticket smart card to gain entry. Non-season ticket holders will need to purchase a ticket from the ticket office on the day. Please note, we are not taking bookings over the phone.
