I’ve made several enjoyable visit to the museum as it has some very interesting galleries including local history, ancient Egypt and Agatha Christie. Most recently I attended their Agatha Christie Mystery Day. It was excellently organised. There was a programme of talks, film shows and...More
A pleasant place to wander round with some interesting exhibits, particularly in respect of wildlife and habitats. There is also a very enjoyable section on the inside of a Devon farmhouse (reconstructed) and another with much Agatha Christie TV memorabilia. Far more enjoyable to visit...More
A pleasant museum that’s a bit like a tardis. Much more to see inside than I expected as I walked up to it. There’s a real effort made in presenting the information in several ways to appeal to adults and children alike which I applaud...More
So, so disappointed with the Agatha Christie Day. At a cost of £30 each we expected a better day - it wasn't as it was described.
Too many foreign screenings and radio plays - now whilst AG sold her books all over the world -...More
We went as there was a Lego exhibition, which was quite good. There was a question sheet for the children which meant they had to look around.
There was an opportunity to build some things out of Lego, but unfortunately this was put in the...More
We visited with my six month old son recently, and having lived in Torquay for ten years, I wish I had visited sooner. The baby liked the lights, sounds and colours in the different exhibition rooms, and I really enjoyed learning more about Torquay. There...More
Visited with my family, not really very impressed at all and very expensive for what it is. The cafe is nice and the staff are friendly. The shop has a lot of Agatha Christie books for sale. Nowhere near as good as the Torre Abbey...More
Great mueseum with lots to see.Every year we go and there is a new exhibition. For instance there was a lego exibition last time we went it was brilliant. Would definately recommend for families with young children!

There is a lift that will take you to most of the museum. The smaller room (where there was an instillation on the lost city of Z when I went) may not be lift accessible as it's on a half floor between ground and first and I don't recall seeing a separate lift there.

Hi, thanks for your message. A discount voucher for 15% off can be obtained from the Tourist Office in the English Riviera Passport booklet. We also offer a discounted rate for senior citizens, low income people, NHS workers, Torbay council workers and the Emergency services. Unfortunately Torquay Museum is a charity and has to charge (we receive no funding from central government) to keep the doors open. If you have difficulty in obtaining the discount voucher let me know and I arrange this for you. This will still entitle you to entry for a year as we have a program of changing exhibitions all year round. We hope to see you soon with your grandson.
