  • Very nice museum with friendly staff. First visit is payable but free entry for the rest of the year. Lovely and quaint. Star Wars Toys well worth seeing  more »

  • For a small fee, we discover many rooms on various themes and temporary exhibitions. Only disappointment: the Museum of the city of Agatha Christie puts very little this last honour: a large aging room without great interest.

  • Good museum, enough to amuse for an hour or two and ticket lasts for year so can can go back in again. Over several floors though which isn't ideal and could do with some more in there. Young kids enjoyed it for an hour before they got bored, older kids for a little longer. Good to do if trying to dodge showers.
  • Very interesting lots of galleries with different things to see especially liked the starwars toys exhibition.
  • Only small but had a great selection of exhibits for everyone's taste, explorers, Star wars, Agatha Christie etc. Egyptian Artifacts well worth the small entrance fee. Our family loved our visit will be looking in on future events.
  • It had several different exhibitions that I personally found very interesting. There was a lift as well as stairs.
  • We had an unexpected visit to the museum today due to a storm trooper being stood outside. Made the grandchildren very happy.

Where to stay in Torquay

When you book a room at a seafront hotel in Torquay, you can take full advantage of English Riviera's famous golden sands and clean swimming facilities, all within walking distance of the town center. Many top-quality seafront hotels offer everything from spa treatments and indoor heated swimming pools, to award-winning bars and front-facing rooms overlooking the town's waterfront promenade. For a less expensive and more romantic alternative deeper inland, consider staying at a private cottage, where you can enjoy privacy and comfort minutes from picturesque coastal paths, pubs, wine bars, and shops.
