“Beautiful step back in time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

This museum is fantastic. It is divided into three floors, with each floor having different exhibits from different points in time. The first floor is themed with Victorian streets. The second floor has all the period rooms showing you the way of life. The Third floor has the Trains and WWI Trench. All very interesting! You can easily spend a few hours in here and not know it.

Definitely recommend visiting to anyone going to Torquay. Absolutely worth the price of admission.

“Needs a little elbow grease”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

A little expensive for the experience and some of the displays could have done with a good clean as they looked like they had had a hard year

Such a variety of fascinating objects, laid out in a brilliant way. There were items we were not familiar with at all!

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Looks small from the outside buy hey what a surprise when you get inside. The chap even has a full size steam train inside.
This place rates with the top similar venues in the country, lots of exhibits, a fantastic victorian street and a very nice themed cafe.

Suitable for all ages and just around the corner ( literally ) from the model villiage.

We shall probably go again.
