Decided to visit the museum because of the reviews on this site and was pleasantly surprised. For a free entry, local authority enterprise that lacks the funding of admission charging sites, the museum is actually very good. Housed in a former military barracks on Burton Road, limited free car parking is available on site. The museum houses a collection predominantly... More

Had a great time at the museum, free to go in which is really good. Was great to see the war displays and also the WW1 tank called 'Daphne' which is there. Enjoyed a lovely coffee outside next to the playground. Nice place to take kids as there's a cool playground for them. Totally recommend anyone who is interested in... More

A great place to stroll around and take in the History of Lincoln from farming equipment to industrial. The impressive information we learnt was about the Tanks first used in WW1 were designed and built in Lincoln and one is on loan....a must see. There was a play area too and it was great to see the Long Rocking Horse... More

I wanted to do some photography and hoped this place would yield some subject matter. I wasn't disappointed, it may not be Lincolns biggest attraction but it was certainly interesting. Nice displays and very friendly staff. Good stuff.

Lincoln has a wonderful cathedral but just up the road is a museum of Lincoln life. It will resonate with people through its room layouts, traditional shops and engines telling the story of everyday life. The war years exhibition was a poignant and connected well with local people and from my own area.

What a brilliant museum! With so many great exhibits and it's free!! Me and my daughter loved every minute of our visit and the gift shop had so much to offer and had a large variety of items and some amazing local items and produce. Will definitely come again and my daughter is looking forward to visiting again this year... More

We have visited today for the first time, as it had been recommended to me by several friends recently. There is free parking in front & by the side of the museum. Free admission for all and a choice of an audio/visual guide costing at £1 each, particulary great for the kids. The staff were very helpful & friendly &... More

Lovely visit through yesteryear! It lasted about an hour or so. Free event with a play in the park to end it off! Worth a visit. The only downside are the narrow corridors that make it difficult to pass with a pram or wheelchair.

Would have given this 2 if it wasn't free, it isn't the best, but you cannot have any gripes when you can pass away half an hour to an hour for free. There is a nice little park in the middle for kids and the museum around the sides was brief but decent enough. The tea rooms was very impressive... More
