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.

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

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
