Formerly the home of the Wright-Taylor family, Baysgarth House has been in public ownership since 1930. In 2004 Champ Ltd took over the management of the house including its buildings, museum, collections and archives.
Staffed mainly by a team of dedicated volunteers, Baysgarth House Museum celebrates the lives of local people through permanent and temporary exhibitions and projects. The Museum hosts its own collections and part of the North Lincolnshire Museum Service’s archives, and is happy to assist with research enquiries.
Baysgarth House Museum is currently undergoing work to restore the ceiling on the main staircase, helping to preserve the house for future generations. This is a surprisingly lengthy process due to the difficulties of working with a listed historic building! We regret that during this work the first floor is closed in the interests of public safety – the ground floor and outbuildings are open as usual. Our apologies for any inconvenience. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter for updates on progress.
