The New Brighton Museum

The Museum is housed in the old Saint Enochs Church which had it's centenary in 2013.

The collection began with photographs only and expanded to include memorabilia of the area. There are many display boards of old photographs (currently undergoing updates) some memorabilia of bygone days of the old pier; the New Brighton Trotting Club; the Champion Surf Life Saving Clubs; the Bowls and Tennis Clubs and the Brass and Silver Bands.

Items from a former well known shop in the area are displayed along with the Mayoral Chain when New Brighton was a Borough. Uniforms from the old New Brighton District High School; memorabilia and photographs from the local New Brighton Primary School and some 1974 Commonwealth Games clothing can be viewed.
