The Torbay Museum houses an array of common and curious artifacts dating from the early 1800's. The museum began its collection with a donation from the Presentation Sisters from St. Michaelâ€™s Convent in honour of their 121st anniversary in the community including a nine piece chesterfield set dated ca. 1880 along with various stained windows and doors. A two section museum, the interior of one room consists of artifacts such as furniture and dishwares in a parlour setting, which reflect the communityâ€™s domestic heritage and other aspects of its material culture, while the other consists of artifacts related to fishing, agricultural and carpentry themes. Numerous other tools are on display as well as numerous photographs and documents. The Museum features demonstrations of mat-hooking.
