The November bus day just gets better & better - 40 vehicles in service, with approx 100 buses in total at the event, taking into account the parked up visitors. To all the volunteers at LVVS, many thanks indeed for another fantastic day out - absolutely superb.

A very good Transport museum, with some rear vehicles on display. A Ruston car made in Lincoln eg. There are open days throughout the year when the preserved bus fleet is put into operation giving rides to visitors. Stagecoach buses run a service from Lincoln city centre with stops close to the museum.

WE visited this museum with a an open mind after reading some of the reviews, however have to agree with others. Mainly double decker buses [not cars as per photo] packed together so can only view the front and rear. A couple of the cars and bikes we museum quality, the rest interesting only.

Very sorry to hear that your visit was not as expected, as a working museum all of our vehicles are regularly taken out of display and used for events so do not all have dedicated parking spaces, this can mean that occasionally they can be parked back in the museum in positions that are not perfect for visits - we...

Ignore the one or two negative reviews - I had an excellent day. Plenty of old vehicles, including cars, vans, buses etc. And the highlight for me was the opportunity to ride in a number of them. I look forward to visiting again.

Memories. They are brought back when viewing some of the exhibits, especially the buses. Pity the place is so cramped. Full marks to restorers of all the vehicles. The workshop provides some insite to the level of commitment and challenges faced.

Small but packed with a large variety of cars and buses from yesteryear. Access to the inside of some of the buses. Plenty of photos and information on display. If you can catch one of the volunteers working in the restoration shop, they are a wealth of information on the history of the vehicles!

The museum is located on the edge of Lincoln and easily accessible from the ring road or by public transport from the centre. I visited on the Easter event day (another event day is held towards the end of the year) when museum and visiting buses were running free services and short tours and had a great day. Car rides...
