Weapons, Top Secret documents, uniforms and rarely seen wartime photos from the Museum’s extensive collections, and beyond, bring to life the impact of World War II on Torbay in this family-friendly exhibition.
Visitors can handle a real Sten Gun and try on an American helmet, then enter a Morrison shelter and find out what it might have been like during an air raid.
The exhibition tells the stories of Torbay’s preparations for the D-Day landings, the American soldiers based in this area and how Torquay suffered during German bombing raids.
10.00 am - 5.00 pm (last admission 4.00 pm). Closed Friday and Sunday (although open Fridays in school holidays).
Standard Torquay Museum admission price, which entitles visitors to entry to the whole museum:
Children (3 and over) £3.60
Families (2&2) £16.95
Pay once and get in free for a year.
