Slightly disappointed and not what I expected from a city and county so full of history but worth the visit never the less. Small and a bit confusing to walk around but quite a lot of interesting exhibits and things to look at. The building has a regimental background and this history is also covered celebrating their gallantry and successes.... More

Great small museum to take the kids to and learn a little more about life during times gone by. It's free to enter, though I'd happily pay. Interesting displays and a nice play area outside to finish off the trip. Saw the prices for the tea room on a chalkboard and they are really reasonable, though can't comment on the... More

This museum is a must see if you are visiting Lincoln. It has so much to keep you interested while walking through all that is on display. There is very much Social history and Military history to see. I visited by myself particularly to look at the Lincolnshire Regiment displays. I was born in Lincoln but now live in Egypt... More

My wife and I went with our two grandsons, aged 6 & 3 on 3rd September and what a lovely place to go. The staff were so pleasant and very sweet to the boys, spending a lot of time encouraging them to enjoy their visit. There is no charge to enter, no parking charges and just a very special museum....

A nostalgic look back at 20th century Lincolnshire life. Nicely laid out and with a lot of interest for children. There really is something for everyone with displays on home life, the history of the Lincolnshire regiment, the engineering history of Lincolnshire including the fact that caterpillar tracks and the first tanks were designed by a Lincoln company. Allow at... More

A fantastic place to visit. Wheelchair friendly. Informative and interesting to children (and adults!) Even better now with the newer play area outside, I can definitely recommend visiting!

This has to be one of the best museums in the area-Whats more its free! Located in the uphill area of Lincoln, even with a few free car parking spaces. This museum really is a fun day out for adults and kids. Explore the Victorian shops including Chemist, Bakers, Blacksmiths etc which are very impressive. There is a mock-up house/rooms... More

My children aged 6 and 10 years loved the displays. They were interested the whole way through. Lots of highlights. Kids can use a tablet when going through the museum so can be interactive too. I chose not to allow mine to have one as I wanted a technology free day. Don't want to spoil it but loads to see... More

Free to visit and well worth it. The displays show the life of ordinary people and there is a good play area for children.
