What's On at Torquay Museum

The Secret Museum: Explore the Stores

Date: 27 February 2020


6pm - 8pm

Join us to discover some of the more that 300,000 objects the museum keeps in store and follow your interests to choose one for display.

About this Event

To celebrate the 175th Anniversary of Torquay Museum we are opening our stores for the general public to explore. During the evening you will be introduced to why the museum has so many objects in storage and asked to choose one of them to put on display in our 'Secret Museum' exhibition opening 20th June 2020.

You will be guided through the process of choosing an object by one of our team of Curators and will be able to look at things stored in boxes and drawers. This is an unusual opportunity to see things that may never have been on display.

Refreshments will be provided.

This event is made possible thanks to the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
