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 will be on sale very soon at the Museum, so don't miss out on this amazing opportunity to be part of something special in the town.
FLAG funding for new building
The Museum has successfully acquired £65k funding to start a new project at the bottom of the garden. Work has begun to clear away the old garage to make room for a new building that will house memorabilia and related items around the fisheries industry. It will also incorporate a fantastic scale model of Hornsea Railway Station. The Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG) have been very supportive and the work should be completed by the end of the year. We will be actively seeking local information and items relating to the fishing industry; if you can help with this, please contact the Museum.
