Torquay Museum Society is a Registered Charity that runs a programme of lectures and educational activities with the Museum as its home.
Membership enables you to support the Society’s work and become involved in an active community.
As a Society Member you are able to visit the Museum free of charge as often as you wish throughout the year. The dynamic environment of the Museum, with its varied programme of temporary exhibitions, special events and children’s holiday programmes enables visitors to return time and time again and still see something new.
The Society's year runs from 1st April to 31st March with activities throughout the year and the main lecture season running from October to April.

The annual Lecture Series runs from October to April each year, on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, with a diverse and interesting range of topics being covered – from Local History to Army Life in the 21st Century.
