Baysgarth House Museum, Barton-upon-Humber, Lincolnshire

Baysgarth Museum is located in Baysgarth House, a Grade II listed building situated in Baysgarth Park, in the market town of Barton-upon-Humber.

It was once the home of the Wright-Taylor family but went into public ownership in 1930. In 2004 Champ Ltd, the Community Heritage Arts and Media Project, a registered charity, overtook the management of the property, including its additional buildings, museum, collections, and archives.

The main building houses Georgian and Victorian style rooms, carefully displaying the lives of local people. There is a large collection of 18th and 19th century pottery and porcelain and an Industrial Museum in the old stable block. Traditional crafts such as blacksmithing, cobbing, and thatching can be found in the Craft Cottage.

The museum is staffed by volunteers.
