Baysgarth House Museum

Located in the heart of historic Barton upon Humber, Baysgarth House is the ancestral home of the prominent Nelthorpe family. Set in 30 acres of parkland, this Grade II listed building is a beautiful example of Georgian architecture and the perfect setting for a family day out. With a variety of exhibitions held throughout the year, the museum displays reflect the local significance of the house.

Baysgarth House is currently closed.

Reopening – Summer 2 July.

Baysgarth House will re-open over the summer months with two exhibitions.

The first exhibition opens on 2 July 2022 and celebrates the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The second exhibition curated by the Better Barrow Community Project, will explore the fascinating life of one of North Lincolnshire’s most famous sons, John Harrison.

The Georgian Room will also be open, and families can take part in free craft activities, as well as enjoying a bite to eat from The Ropewalk’s pop-up café.

Baysgarth House is open every weekend from 2 July to 28 August 2022, 11am to 3pm on Saturdays and 11am to 2pm on Sundays.

The re-opening of the house coincides with the return of popular, family-friendly performances in the park:

– 17 July: Barton Community Band
– 14 August: The Pantaloons Theatre Company presents: War of the Worlds
– 21 August – Illyria Theatre Company presents: Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
