Become A Member
Torquay Museum Society is a Registered Charity that runs a programme of lectures and educational activities with the Museum as its home.
Membership enables you to support the Society’s work and become involved in an active community.
As a Society Member you are able to visit the Museum free of charge as often as you wish throughout the year. The dynamic environment of the Museum, with its varied programme of temporary exhibitions, special events and children’s holiday programmes enables visitors to return time and time again and still see something new.
Membership to the Society entitles you to free entrance to all the Society meetings and lectures as well as being able to join any of the Society Sections, which are currently:
- Archaeology, Geology and Astronomy
- Literature and Arts
- Local History
- Natural History: Botany and Horticulture, Zoology and Ornithology
The annual Lecture Series runs from October to April each year, on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, with a diverse and interesting range of topics being covered – from Local History to Army Life in the 21st Century.
Once you have become a Member of the Society you may wish to consider joining one of the sub-committees who help the Museum in a number of activities and also organise social and fundraising events which members can take part in.
After consultation with our members we are changing our subscription year so that it will run from October to September the following year, rather than April to March the following year. Having a different membership year and lecture year has led to some confusion for members and In order to synchronise the subscription year and the lecture season it will be necessary FOR ONE TIME ONLY to have an eighteen month subscription ‘year’ which will run from April 2019 to September 2020.
We do not expect members to pay the eighteen-month subscription in one payment and therefore subscriptions can be paid in two instalments (please see details on the Membership Application Form, a link to which can be found below)
The 18 month subscription rate is as follows:
- Single £90
- Joint £150 (at the same address)
with the usual life memberships available as follows:
- Individual life membership £500 (10 years)
- Joint life membership £800 (10 years)
