This is a must see if you have an hour spare or are visiting Lincoln. It has all the things there of bygone days and holds crafts and things for the children on the holidays. It is free entry and has a cheap cafe and a lovely shoo. Worth a visit

I love to go around museums where there are rooms done out as they had been n bygone days. This is very good for children too so that they can experience a school or shop or somebody's living room from a past era. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour, I'm not so interested in the military artefacts but of course others... More

The museum holds some great exhibits. Ideal for children as many are activity based. Free entry. Look out for the special themed weekends.

The revamp of the central area in this lovely little free museum has given visitors with children even more of a reason to linger, and you can sit outside for tea & cake while your children play on the new themed landscaping & play equipment.

We were recommended to go here and told that it was interesting and fun. It held a little bit of interest but not really fun. Has a number of artefacts, the most interesting was an original tank from WW1, but much of it was tired and cramped. It is a place to go if you have an hour or so... More

There so much to see with many various exhibits etc, there is something of interest for everyone of various ages. Parents with young children... More

Although we arrived at 3,.30 and the museum shuts at 4, we managed to see all the exhibits, and it would have been great to have had a little more time to look at everything in more depth. A huge variety of elements of life on display, it was a very enjoyable visit and trip back down memory lane regarding... More

Thought we would pop in for a short look round but stayed much longer as it was so interesting with lots to see. Something for everyone. Friendly people. Do go and visit if in the area.
