Wonderful small museum/art gallery. We had to whizz round the excellent exhibition of Turner and Stubbs paintings done when the artists spent time in Lincolnshire - wish we could have stayed longer.

Pleasantly surprised with the Collection. It has such interesting artists featured. The permanent display of history of Lincoln was superb. My kids loved it and so did my husband and I. Well worth a visit, for fun and an interactive time.

The archaeological museum is small, but it's fantastic, very well arranged. The Usher Gallery is also worth a visit, not miss Joseph Banks' painting at the stairs

Been to this museum twice when visiting Lincoln as we find it really interesting. It's not huge, but admission is free and you can easily spend a couple of hours here. It's very interesting and incorporates a lot of metal dectorists finds of Roman coins and jewellery as well as many other items from local archeological digs. Everything is well... More
