Hornsea Museum is a local museum in Hornsea, East Riding of Yorkshire, northern England.[1]

The museum was established in 1978. It is housed in an 18th-century farmhouse and two cottages. The museum is a registered charity (No. 509615) and is largely run by volunteers. The exhibit rooms include presentations on Hornsea Pottery in the cottages.[2] The museum forms part of the Holderness museums collaboration.

The farmhouse was occupied by the Burn family for almost 300 years.[1] The museum presents Victorian rural life and local history concerning north Holderness.[3] The exhibit rooms present life in Victorian times, including a bedroom, the dairy, kitchen, parlour, and wash-house. Outside the farmhouse are a barn, craft workshops, and a Victorian street scene. In addition, there are local history displays, a Victorian school room, and a garden.
