Well worth a visit for anyone wanting to learn about life in Lincoln, from the rural to day to day life and proud military history of the City of Lincoln and its surrounding area. It has a fine display of old vehicles, especially the fact that the first Tanks used in World War One were designed and manufactured here.

We visited this museum because of enthusiastic reviews on TripAdvisor. It is a short distance from the centre of the city and has free parking (full when we went but we could park easily on a nearby road). The museum is free and you are even given a free guide. There is a small very reasonable cafe where we had... More

First of all, it's free. Which can't be laughed at. But even if it wasn't, it would still be worth a visit. A true look at the past, examining the life and culture of Lincolnshire in times past.

They say you learn something new every day but I picked up several interesting snippets as we wandered round this fabulous collection for more than two hours, transfixed in particular by the history of the Lincolnshire regiment in all its guises. Touching personal stories.. Sadness and loss of the five Beechey brothers from one family lost in WW1. The artefacts... More

Not very well known as (1) in Lincoln and (2) bit off the usual tourist trail - Castle and Cathedral. It's free! Good examples of Lincoln's engineering past glories - traction engines, railways, and of course the first tank. Set of period rooms and friendly cafe.

Free museum with plenty to interest all the family. The staff are very friendly. The added bonus of a display of local artists work was an unexpected treat.
