Another refurb for Torre Abbey

In Museum [Insider], Museums, new content on March 10, 2011 at 7:33 pm

Did you know the seaside resort of Torquay gets its name from a 12th-century monastic institution? Torre Abbey is over 800 years old – and do they know it. Hot on the heels of a refurbishment project there a few years ago, they are now planning another huge investment in the site.

They’re about to make some renovations to the physical structure of the site and overhaul the learning and exhibition spaces. It’s a long-haul project, taking until probably 2015. But the great news is that they don’t have to close the entire site while they do the works.

There’s more information about the site and the refurbishment in an article on Museum [Insider].
