We visited this museum as a family of three generations and all of us found something of interest. An incredible find - can't recommend it highly enough if you have a couple of hours to spare. And it's FREE - great for families on a budget. Lots to learn about and plenty of fun!

Based on the long history of the city, this museum travels through time of what it was like to live there. its the kind of museum that any medieval town should have.

A very good and interesting place to visit. The exhibits are in good condition and not tatty. The display about the Yeomany was very informative. As in the past I had been delivering cooling pumps to Ruston Hornsby for their marine engines etc. I found the transport section extremely interesting for people with an engineering background. Kiddies play area is... More

I visited this attraction with my daughter in a wheel chair after a road accident. It was extremely interesting although being in my 70's it was a little depressing to see the items of my childhood as exhibits.

Great museum for all the family, with interactive displays, a play area & cafe & all for free! (Except the cafe!) Great history timecapsule with General & Lincolnshire specific history on display. A must for visitors & locals alike. Come rain or shine you can spend a couple of hours here educating your family in a very enjoyable way. Highly... More

Great to see what Lincolnshire has been like down the ages up to modern times. Totally free. Good playground for kids to tire themselves out on. Lovely to sit and eat ice cream on a summers day.

Just a few minutes from the city centre, this museum of rural life in days gone by is housed in a former barracks. It shows items from everyday life, including farming and household items, and has a collection of tractors and steam artefacts relating to local manufacturers. I was here mid week , there was a group of school children... More
