After months of late nights with our computers and countless cups of coffee, we are thrilled to officially announce the launch of Torquay Museum Without Walls. We are so proud of how far we’ve come since we formed in September 2015 and have worked hard with you in mind. We want you to be the first to test drive and start exploring our site with two goals in mind:
- As a team with a passion for history, our goal is to share our research in a way that you can quickly and easily learn about the history of the Torquay region – the people, the events and the journey.
- We also aim to put our fellow researchers, bloggers, and fans at the heart of our website to ensure we cover the needs of those in particular who cannot access some of this information easily.
- Most importantly we want to be inclusive by giving you an opportunity to provide your stories particularly through oral histories and add to our own Wikipedia sites – placeography and TORQopedia.
Our site features of Torquay historical databases and oral histories, enables visitors to become acquainted with our unique approach to history. We will be rolling out new pages and functionality over the coming months, and hope that you enjoy visiting our new website. Going forward, we promise to continually expand our online content and keep you updated with the latest information on the Torquay region history. So check back often, and connect with us on Facebook or join our Facebook group.
And most importantly, we would love to hear from you! Your opinions are key to taking Torquay Museum Without Walls from our computer to yours. Please share your feedback with us on our comments page or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
More to Come!
The TMWW Team
