The Museum Gift Shop


The Moomins are here, along with the Witch and the Dragon from the Room on the Broom! Cuddly characters from the much-loved Gruffalo, Mog and the Tiger who Came to Tea are all snuggled together on the shelves. 


Come and see the fantastic range of gifts, toys, books and photographs at Torquay Museum's Gift Shop! Located on the ground floor, the Gift Shop is a haven for retail therapy. You can be sure to find something for everyone with our selection of hand-picked gifts, alongside books and children’s souvenirs. 

Continuing our exhibition-related themed items, we have an assortment of Explorer themed books, gifts and cuddly toys - including cuddly Lorikeets, Colobus Monkeys and colourful frogs! 


The ranges we stock are directly inspired by Torquay Museum's collections and exhibitions, with many items exclusive to the Gift Shop.  Ranges include Ancient Egyptian themed items, general local history and a large range of Agatha Christie merchandise, from DVDs and books to photographs from the Torquay Museum Agatha Christie archive. Taken from the Torquay Museum Pictoral Record Archive, we also have photographs showing historic scenes of Torquay on sale. In our toy section we have recently welcomed back the Sabre Toothed Cats, as well as the cuddly Woolly Mammoths, teddy bears and kittens, all of which are looking for good homes! 


Our friendly staff and volunteers are always on hand to offer helpful advice for picking the perfect gift. When you make a purchase all profits go back into supporting the Museum and although the Gift Shop is accessible without paying for Museum entry we do hope that you will combine the two visits!

Don't forget to visit the online Gift Shop, available by clicking here, for that browsing at home experience.

We need Mystery Shoppers!! Please help us improve our service, and the experience of visitors, by downloading our Customer Service Assessment Sheet here and visiting the Museum. Any items or tickets purchased while being a Mystery Shopper can be refunded on request and on presentation of a valid receipt.
