Travel back through 400 million years of time at Torquay Museum – a hands-on family-friendly visitor attraction, with lots to see and do for children and adults alike.
A wide variety of exhibitions are hosted throughout the year by the Museum, from child-friendly summer blockbusters to fascinating exhibitions about South Devon’s amazing archaeology, geology and people.
This year’s highlights include an interactive, family-friendly Torbay at War – 70th Anniversary D-Day exhibition, where visitors can see weapons, Top Secret documents, uniforms and rarely seen wartime photos from the Museum’s extensive collections that bring to life the impact of World War II on Torbay. The exhibition runs from 6th June until 1st November. The Tell Me a Dragon exhibition, which runs until 25th June, features original stunning watercolour paintings by award-winning children’s author and illustrator, Jackie Morris, including two magnificent paintings of dragons featured in a calendar of Terry Pratchett’s best-selling Discworld novels.
Detect your way through Britain’s only Agatha Christie gallery at Torquay Museum, which is dedicated to the life story of the Queen of Crime. Re-developed and improved in 2013, the new gallery now enables visitors to step inside Poirot’s study and lounge, including furniture, books, pictures and even fireplaces from his beautiful London Art Deco apartment.
The furniture and props, featured in ITV’s adaptations of Agatha Christie’s Poirot, were generously donated to Torquay Museum, after the filming of the final episode, by ITV Studios, Acorn Productions Ltd and HarperCollins Ltd. There are also new, meticulously researched information panels containing a wealth of facts and photographs about Agatha Christie’s life and work.
Come face-to-face with North-West Europe’s oldest human fossil and the sabre-toothed tigers he shared his Torquay home with 44,000 years ago, and explore life and death in Ancient Egypt, including the coffin of a 2,500 year old mummified boy.
