This is a lovely place displaying many things. Homes and shop as they use to be. Forces memorabilia. Agricultural machinery and many, many more things. Everyone can find something that interest them. And the best bit till last - it's free.

A true Lincolnshire gem and well worth a visit , wherever you are in Lincoln. There's so much to see and take in, you probably need two visits to appreciate how good it is. Entrance is free and the experience fantastic, a must-see Lincoln attraction

We spent a good 90 minutes walking around the museum. This really is well worth a visit, it is free entry but please leave a donation, 5 minute walk from the Castle.

Free to enter, easy to navigate around. A diversity of displays depicting bygone times. I enjoyed seeing all the medals from Lincolnshire folk including the VC, once I had opened one drawer I had to open them all! The display on the Lincolnshire Regiment is very well presented with audio too. The farm machinery, steam engines and huge tank all... More
