Student Distance Learning Activities on Torquay History
As we contemplate further lockdown measures and disruption to education with face to face instruction, Torquay Museum Without Walls has created some activities for kids that focuses on the history of our Torquay region. These can be used as classroom activities or as enrichment activities at home when looking for something extra to young people to explore.
We are a digital library and contain most of the information on our website that will be needed to complete the activities. Our intention is to make home learning a bit easier and more fun. Head over to our EDUCATION SECTION
TORQUAY HISTORY COLLECTION
Our Torquay history collection collectively tells the story of the district. From the early pioneers to the surfing journey that changed the town.
Torquay Museum Without Walls started in 2015, as a ‘modern historical society’ living in the digital world. We owned not a single image, map, object or original research. Through the combined efforts of our curators, researchers, and collectors, our Torquay history collection has grown to represent more than 150 years of the Torquay district history. The growth has come about through the generosity of people who have donated family treasures of objects and photos from the past to us so that we preserve them for future generations.
WELCOME We welcome all contributions to update information or post new information. Historical information comes from people like you. These projects tell – and in many cases gather – the stories of people from the Torquay region.
