The Museum

Hornsea Museum was originally a farm owned by the Burn family as early as 1672. Currently, it occupies 3 buildings on Newbegin, housing an enormous range of local items and memorabilia.

On your visit you will see a Victorian bedroom, a dairy, washhouse, workshops, barn, cart bays full of tools and implements from local industry, railway memorabilia, and of course an almost full range of Hornsea Pottery dating from 1949 to the factory’s closure in 2000.

All this, plus 3 exhibition rooms too. It may look small from the outside, but do not underestimate the time you will need to get round.
