Torquay Museum holds over 5,000 archaeological specimens from Torbay and sites around South Devon. The collections are predominantly prehistoric, but also include some Dark Age items and finds from Medieval Torre Abbey. Some of the most important objects in the collection have come from the numerous cave sites located in this part of Devon, including the largest collection of tools and finds from nearby Kents Cavern, which numbers over 1,600 artefacts. In addition to this the collection also includes international finds, from sites in the Near East, Egypt, Italy, Greece, France, and Denmark!

There’s so much to see at Torquay Museum! We definitely recommend paying a visit!
