World Museum Tour- Hornsea Museum. Part 1.

On our last day in Hornsea we decided to visit Hornsea Museum which also holds a huge collection of Hornsea pottery and this was very exciting. The world museum tour commenced after a breakfast of eggs and beans and we said our goodbyes to our holiday home. We parked up and arrived and were greeted by a very nice man all dressed up with a special hat on. 

We paid our entrance fee of £3.50 and started from the beginning. We also saw mood rings in the shop but we didn't buy but will forever pine.

We at once met this nice man, lets call him Steve. Only joking it’s John Burn and his family used to own the farm here before it was the museum.

A bit about the museum -

'Situated on Newbegin, the main street of Hornsea, is Burns Farm. For nearly 300 years it was tenanted by the Burn family. It was originally a single-storey cobble building dating back to the late 16th century.

A second storey, in hand-made brick, was added in about 1740.
The farmhouse has a country kitchen with an inglenook fire place, a parlour, bedroom, dairy and washhouse, all with Victorian furnishings. Three additional rooms in the farmhouse are used for exhibitions which are periodically changed.

Behind the farmhouse there is a large garden which is flanked by workshops with hand farm implements, joiners' and wheelwrights' tools and a blacksmith's shop. In the 18th century barn there are displays of farming through the seasons and the Whitedale building traces the history of the Hull to Hornsea railway and Hornsea's fishing heritage. A Victorian schoolroom is in Swallow Cottage as well as the museum's function room.

n the museum's rooms and outbuildings there are old photographs of the town and surrounding villages, the Hull and Hornsea Railway, the brick and tile works, shipwrecks and lifeboats'

The rooms are small but full to the top with treats and trinkets and a lovely cat playing with some wool.

The dolls house and toy room was very special and my favourite parts were the potted plant and sleeping bed cat.

I very much liked the exhibition of WW1 and WW2 memorabilia and these embroidered cards.
