What's On at Torquay Museum

Re-opening of Torquay Museum

Date: 22 July 2020 - 23 September 2020

We are delighted to announce that Torquay Museum will re-open its doors to the public from Wednesday 22nd July. We can only guarantee Museum entry if visitors book their tickets in advance, preferably online, or by telephoning the Museum directly. Contact the Museum in advance to check availability of last-minute bookings.

Our regular visitors have been eagerly awaiting our re-opening, and we are now delighted to be able to welcome them back to the Museum, along with visitors who may never have ventured inside one of Devon's finest and oldest museums, packed with over 350,000 fascinating artefacts from across the globe. Along with our ever-popular Agatha Christie and Explorers galleries, we also have a fascinating temporary exhibition: Claws! The Human History of Cats.

We have been working hard to ensure that the Museum will be safe for visitors and staff when we re-open. Visitors must book their tickets in advance, either online or by telephoning the Museum directly. We are restricting and monitoring visitor numbers to ensure that we can maintain social distancing and ensure the safety of our visitors. Protective screens have been installed at our ticket desk and in our shop, and we have instigated a one-way system around the Museum in order to help maintain social distancing. Additionally, we will be implementing a rigorous cleaning regime throughout the day. Staff and volunteers who work in the public areas of the Museum will wear face masks or face shields, and we encourage visitors to do likewise.

The Museum will be open from 10am - 4pm (last entry 3.15pm), Monday to Saturday. Click on this LINK which will take you to our advance booking page, or alternatively call the Museum on 01803 293975 to reserve your admission tickets.
