Founded in c1845 by Torquay Natural History Society, Torquay Museum was originally intended to collect specimens reflecting the natural history of the local area. However, a diverse variety of artefacts covering additional subjects were soon accepted, forcing the society to move in c1875 to a purpose-built museum currently holding a Grade II Listing. The displays include local pottery, terracotta, marble, geology, Victoriana and local archaeology finds, in particular items from Kent's Cavern. Special summer exhibitions.
