Help Support the Museum for Christmas
Christmas is a time when communities come together and people choose to support their favourite charity to spread joy and hope. This year, Torquay Museum – one of the oldest local charities needs your help too and it is offering unique gifts in return. Twelve of the Museum's most treasured objects are offered for adoption for a year.
No matter what your interests there is something for you to adopt for yourself or give as a gift for a loved one, and it will come with yearly passes to the Museum and our guidebooks so you can visit your object or see our temporary exhibitions anytime you wish.
The Museum’s remit is to collect and preserve the natural and human heritage of Torbay. Our core funding has been static for many years but our costs continue to rise and looking after and engaging people with the 400 million years of Torbay’s extraordinary past is becoming more and more of a challenge. Our insurance bill for one year alone is £12,000!
With this in mind, we really need the community people to get behind the Museum and help us a little by adopting some of our most fabulous local objects.
