An excellent museum, with lots of variety presented in an interesting way. We primarily visited for the Spies exhibition (fascinating and well-planned), but wished we'd allocated more holiday time to spend seeing the rest of the museum exhibits in full. Even the 'standard' bits of town museum e.g. sections on other cultures were presented unusually to provide new perspectives, for example, using a focus on explorers. There was lots for children to do and staff were friendly. If you're an Agatha Christie fan, you may feel there isn't a large enough section here about her. Nevertheless, the rest of the museum is also excellent. The COVID one way system was clear to follow.

We came primarily to see the Agatha Christie exhibition which in our opinion needs to have more in it. Yes they have 2 film sets, poirot’s cane but there must be more than could be shown to show off the famous author. Not a criticism just a hopeful suggestion. The temporary exhibition of the Russians are coming was excellent and worth a visit. Staff were friendly and helpful and the shop is worth a visit too. The cafe alas was closed due to COVID restrictions.

We went to this museum mostly to see the Agatha Christie exhibition. This is a small exhibition but with a lot of information and is recommended for Christie fans. We also enjoyed the temporary exhibitions on cats and 'The Russians are coming'. This museum is small but has a number of exhibitions in a lovely building. The staff were helpful and friendly and they had appropriate Covid-19 precautions in place, I would recommend it if you are in Torquay.

We always love our visits and go several times a year. There are many exhibits and often exhibitions and presentations on. We have attended many. Our son loved the VR and went back every weekend whilst it was there. The lego exhibition and costumes were also fab. I have written this review due to a few horrid comments who I saw only gave 1 star which is totally unfair. People need to remember this is TORQUAY not a huge city like Birmingham or Exeter and the museum is quaint but should you read all the information and actually pay interest you will enjoy it. Unfortunately, many people seem to lack that ability these days.

Beautiful building with a good shop. The museum is on several floors. Varying topics on display including nature, explorers and Agatha Christie. ITV Poirot sets very interesting.
