Excellent. If you like old cars and especially buses, then this museum is a must to visit. The restoration of the vehicles is first class and mainly done by volunteers. Many vehicles have been used in tv or films or are used at big events. A must for all who like old cars and buses which are still working and... More

Excellent collection of vintage vehicles and associated collections, plenty to see and presented to a high standard. A museum where the exhibits are actually restored and not just done up, a proper place of preservation where work can be seen in the workshops. Glad to visit again any time, especially to see the beautiful Jaguar!!!

This is more than a museum, it's a preservation society. You can even look in their workshop to see the ongoing projects. If you are a "hands on" classic car or bus enthusiast you will have a great 2 or 3 hours here. It is extremely good value. The man that met us at the door was super friendly and... More

We visited here on a wet summer afternoon with two young children aged 2 1/2 years and 6 years. It didn't take us long to get round (around 25 minutes), and although the children weren't overly impressed we were glad we had been and in visiting the museum supported a local interest group. Not sure we will ever go back... More

If you are an old bus geek then you may enjoy yourself, otherwise it takes about 20 minutes to walk around. it can be incorporated with a visit to Whisby nature park if you have a car

We dropped in here after visiting Doddington Hall, as the SatNav showed it was nearby. It is a large building crammed full of old vehicles. Plenty of nostalgia and memories. Apart from the vehicles, which included a considerable number of buses, there is automotive paraphernalia from all eras. Well worth a visit, and the entrance fees are more than reasonable.

A delightful collection of old vehicles, mainly buses. Keep an eye out for their open days and enjoy trips around Lincoln in buses of all ages. Well done to you all, and thank you.

Visited the open day early November and had a great time. Organisation excellent; catering excellent; vehicles brilliant. We took the opportunity to use as many bus rides as could be fitted in and did the 5pm city centre trip which takes you to the Cathedral Quarter and a stop for photos. The rain did not put us nor anyone else... More

Visited on a special event day and took the grandchildren. A large number of the exhibits were outside on display and the buses in use offering rides to and from the city and to locations outside Lincoln. Well worth taking the children so they could experience old style bus travel, even in the rain!
