Half-term is here and the Torquay Museum gift shop is ready to welcome visitors.

Finding unique gifts and birthday presents can be a pain but the museum gift shop has it covered.

Our stock is updated with every new temporary exhibition the museum puts on, the items on the shelves have become varied and eclectic, perfect for finding something distinctive.

The shop also stocks an assortment of books and gifts from local authors and artists.

At long last the online shop is up and running and filled with great things.

The museum has had a great deal of iconic Agatha Christie items stocked in the gift shop since last summer - and now most of which can now be found online.

Included in the Agatha Christie range are products inspired by classic Agatha Christie book covers. You can find tea towels, magnets, coasters and lens cloths online.

You can also buy delightful prints directly from the museum archive on photographic paper as well as Torquay Museum branded items such as notebooks and car stickers, all from the comfort of your home.
