This used to be really good years ago, with so much about Lincolnshire life. It is more modern now. Has a good small childrens play area. Old fashioned 'rooms' - good for reminiscing . Highlights are the tank and the old urinal (not in use!) Has displays of agricultural machinery etc.

We were fascinated by the amount of exhibits in this museum and many bring back memories of my early days. Well worth a visit

Loved the layout, lots of very interesting exhibits with a very nice tea shop at the end. Only dislike is that it was all over to quickly.

The kids loved it, "Did Granma really live like this?" ""Wow!" Beautifully laid out in rooms and also the the transport and farming areas. Very good descriptions of items, etc. Easy to spend far too long there since there is so much stuff in the collections.

I came here with my 2 small boys (4&5) not expecting there to be much for them to enjoy. I was very wrong! They had a wonderful day with loads for them to see and do.

Very nicely presented according to trade or craft (the chemist's, the drapery, the blacksmith, etc). I thought the British Military exhibit was especially well. Fans of trains and tractors will like the transportation exhibit.

Fab place to kill an hour or two. Our kids loved it. They loved looking around everything especially the transport, industry & agriculture gallery. The outdoor play area is fab too, kept the wee ones entertained. Surprised its free 😄

When the cold east wind blows this museum comes into its own. Although the collection is a little eclectic, it is well set out with rooms reflecting how we lived in the past and shops & workshops with contemporaneous contents. Recalling my youth, I can recognise the picture being painted and it emphasises how well economic growth has treated us... More
