Popped in here for a free couple of hours to kill. But was soon taken in and couldn't believe how much we enjoyed it or how quick time went, sadly didn't make it all the way round as we ran out of time. Have both said we will go back and spend much longer there to really take it all... More

The many exhibits were well arranged & gave a fascinating picture of life in the county over the centuries with the wide variety of different types of industry etc. The collection of old vehicles was impressive.

I have been wanting to visit the museum for several months now. We decided to go last week with our four children. I was amazed how easy it was to get there and to find plenty of places to park. I did not expect the museum to be as big as I imagined and was even more surprised how the... More

Interesting cultural and social history museum. We were there on a busy weekend. Among other things, they were honoring the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I, and the Museum was featuring a Tank display, since the Tank was invented and designed originally in Lincoln. Took a free 20-30 minute guided tour of the industrial machinery display which... More

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
