Never did I know that Lincoln was the center of so much industry! In addition to showing what a typical home might have looked like, there is a great barn of a building showing the contributions to agriculture, the military, and other industries that needed heavy equipment. We loved the historic cars, too! There is an inner courtyard where children... More

We had spent too long shopping in Lincoln to give this museum justice, so we did a lightning tour before it closed. The variety of artefacts is staggering and there is something for everyone here. 5 minutes before it closed the kind lady let us whizz round the last few rooms, no jobs-worth there! It is all the more worth... More

The museum is free, along with parking and was surprisingly good. The museum is laid out in a square with a play park for children in... More

Took some visitors to Lincoln to this museum and felt it really was worthwhile. The exhibits gave a good picture of the past with a truly local feel, interesting and neither patronising or too demanding.

Didn't expect this to be worth the visit but we had time on our hands so set off from out hotel to find it. It has been well set out in sensibly themed sections. The site is quite large and houses a huge range of exhibits some even housing tractors and a first world war tank.

I have gone to this place at least 8 times in the last 10 years... it's the kind of place that you can go back to and learn more every time. There's a play area for kids while you stop for a coffee and upstairs always has new things as well. It's a place for adults and kids alike. Highly... More

I can't believe it took me so long to get around to visit this wonderful museum....and the fact that there was no entrance fee really surprised me! Nice volunteer run cafe, friendly staff and a vast area covering all 'Lincolnshire' related heritage. In fact, a day in Lincoln can be vety inexpensive if you want it to be...why not visit... More

Such a rich availability of exhibits. So interesting. We realised we should have gone earlier to gain maximum benefit from the variety and detail available on our doorstep. A rich treasure I bet many Lincoln people are not aware of. Visiting again very soon. And its free.
