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
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.
WW2 Street Party!
On Saturday 25th July, 10:30 - 4, Hornsea Museum will be presenting a day to celebrate the ending of WW2 with a Street Party in the garden! There will be food, live music, children's games, displays and more. We will also host a marquee where you can bring your own memorabilia and share it with others. Tickets are on sale now at the Museum, only £3, so don't miss out on this opportunity to be part of something special in the town.
