Once we sorted out the strange method of entering the parking area (missed it first go around) it was into the entry area. Reception friendly. A rather eclectic array of items. Some interactive exhibits Try cranking the Morris to help the lady in distress. But very interesting. Would be a great few hours for youngsters.

I'm a childminder and I took a couple of my mindees here one rainy day and we all had a super time. The café is reasonably priced and there are also a few pieces of play equipment in the outside. The museum has a variety of different shops and even has a game for the children. They are given written... More

In the 1980's my mum took me and my sisters here every summer holiday as one of activity days. I took my kids here when visiting to show them a bit of history and to tell them about the days out I used to have. The museum was just as I remembered it but with the addition of a few... More

We spent most of the day here - there was just so much to see! It's not well signposted (in fact we'd driven part it on numerous occasions) but it is within 10 minutes easy walking distance of the cathedral and castle in Lincoln. Children and adult would find it enjoyable and an excellent day out - it's also free!... More

There is something for everyone in this museum. The children who were there were having a good time - lots of things to see and do as well as a play area in the middle. The older people were enjoying the old shops and remembering how things used to be. Many old machines and good record of Lincolnshires agricultural, social... More
