I was the first person in after the doors opened and the staff were welcoming and full of additional facts about local history. The museum is great with lots to look at and a range of topics based around Lincoln's history. A fun morning out and very enthusiastic staff who were more than happy to help.

Before we arrived we phoned ahead to ask to borrow a wheelchair. The museum staff could not have been more helpful and friendly! The chair was waiting for us when we arrived, the staff explained the layout and highlights of the museum and gave a truly top notch service by making us feel really welcomed. The audio video tour is... More

Dont miss this little treasure. It tells you all about Lincoln's heritage - did you know tanks came from Lincoln? - as well as some lovely displays of an old grocers, chemist, kitchen, front room etc and a Victorian school room. Plenty of nostalgia for the older and interest for the younger. Passed 3 hours quite easily. It's free too... More

The previous reviews all do the museum full justice. A great way to see and learn about the area around Lincoln and Lincoln itself. A must place to see.

Fascinating glimpse of Lincoln's recent history. We enjoyed the displays of typical rooms and shops of the 19th Century, the superb collection of farm equipment, and the impressive military museum too. Opening hours are too short, we could have spent longer there! But definitely a must-see, and free!

Friendly and packed with small-scale interest. It has one of the few remaining WWI tanks, which were designed in Lincoln. The tea room is amazingly good value, and the parking is free.

We had a few hours spare before our train and luckily saw signs for this museum. It is part open air, part inside and includes reconstructions of the past commercial and domestic activities, plus a big section on various wars and a huge selection of old transport and machinery. Plus a very nice and cheap cafe. It's also FREE!!!

For the size of the site and the fact that it is free to enter, this is a little gem. Yes it is basic, but it is very enlightening about past life in Lincolnshire. We loved the nursery rhymes as they bought back memories of our childhood and that we also sang them to our grown up kids. The i-guide... More

A museum of ordinary life of times past. Well laid out and the first time I have seen a tank called Daphne! A good place for a family visit with play area as well as interesting exhibits.
