Royal Pavilion & Museums Insider -- 3 July 2020

Lockdown may be easing and the sun is (mostly) shining, but we think you may still enjoy some museum-style entertainment at home. Today we introduce 'What's the Connection?', a set of new online puzzles based on our collections.

We also explore the pleasures of the 'patch', tell the story of superstar twins Daisy and Violet Hilton, find out why a biplane once crashed into a Hove street, and look back at the time Canada played the United States in a baseball match in Preston Park.

What's the Connection?

A new series of online puzzles by Grace and Cecilia in our curatorial team.

We've taken groups of four objects from across our collections that are linked by a common theme -- can you work out the connection?

[Caution: they get harder as they go on.]
