Things to do at Hornsea Museum review

Hornsea Museum is a museum in the seaside town of Hornsea in East Yorkshire. The museum was established in 1978 and it is housed in an 18th-century farmhouse and two cottages. The museum is mostly run by local volunteers. Hornsea Museum is much larger than you may think.

The museum represents Victorian rural life and local history concerning North Holderness, which is the local area. The rooms also present life in Victorian times including a bedroom, a dairy, kitchen, parlour and a wash house.

The farmhouse has a large garden you can wander around plus a barn, craft workshops, a Victorian schoolroom and a Victorian street scene. There are also exhibition rooms with militaria and childhood toys. The cottages have exhibitions with around 2,000 pieces of Hornsea pottery and there is a model railway plus model fishing boats. There is also a play area in the garden. They often have children’s craft days during the school holidays and other annual events.

Covid 19 – Please check the website or social media of an attraction before visiting. Many places may be open differently and some remain closed. Reviews do not mention all of these changes or possible price changes. Most places still require you to pre-book online in advance.
