The Secret Museum Exhibition

12 Jun - 4 Sep

Torquay Museum

'The Secret Museum' is our 175th anniversary exhibition and will be a unique opportunity for some of the huge range of collections held at the Museum to be showcased. Torquay Museum has exceptionally large and varied collections for a town museum. Our stores are a ‘Secret Museum’ full of wondrous objects, some of international importance, some of huge local significance, but many just curious and interesting with fascinating histories. 

This exhibition has been largely curated by the local community where there will be an exciting level of unpredictability as people have accessed the stores and chosen little known and forgotten objects for display.  175 objects will be on display, one for each year the Museum has been in existence. In many cases the individuals choosing objects have researched these items or written interpretation based on what their choice meant to them. So delve into our ‘Secret Museum’ and find treasures that will hopefully fascinate and inspire you. 

Open daily. Pre-booking required.
