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.

Membership to the Society entitles you to free entrance to all the Society meetings and lectures as well as being able to join any of the Society Sections, which are currently:

  • Archaeology, Geology and Astronomy
  • Literature and Arts
  • Local History
  • Natural History: Botany and Horticulture, Zoology and Ornithology
  • Rambles.

The annual Lecture Programme 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.  During the summer months we hold mini-lectures each Tues morning called 'Converzationies'.

Torquay Museum Society Lecture season will be at Torquay Museum in Pengelly Hall. For more details call 01803 293975 or email: for more details.  Click here for a copy of the on-line lecture programme.
