Vehicles in good condition, plus some waiting for restoration.

We were fortunate enough on the day we went to be able to have a ride in a Jaguar SS, it was a wonderful experience.

This is a well presnted, clean and tidy bus museum. The staff are friendly and helpful. Even as someone who isn't a bus enthusiast, this was an ok museum.

I was a little disappointed with the presentation of the exhibits. All crowded together and unavailable to get down between the exhibits. But space costs money. The work that has been done on the vehicles is brilliant. The guide book is a must for the explanation of the vehicles.

The museum is staffed by real enthusiasts who have had a personal stake in the vehicles on display. The descriptions in front of each vehicle are informative and detailed but the people working there are also able to fill in on any missing details. We went there with two young kids and they were able to go inside the vehicles... More

This is a medium sized transport museum focusing on local exhibits to the Lincoln / Lincolnshire area from bikes to buses and lots of transport related items. The biggest part of the collection is buses. The majority of the restored exhibits are in fantastic condition - clearly a labour of love. All exhibits are clean and tidy and yes they... More

Visited here early June. it wasn't busy - which is a shame- which gave us plenty of time to look around. The volunteers here have done amazing work. The vehicles have not only been restored to a really high standard but painstakingly researched. A nostalgia trip for those a bit older and a great lesson for younger people in how... More

Run by volunteers. A large collection of road vehicles, mainly buses from Lincolnshire. All very close together due to a lack of space. Visitors can also walk around the active workshop.next time I will visit on one of the open days because thats when the cars and buses run and visitors can ride with them.

The park and ride was great to ride again on a double-decker bus! There were quite afew vintage cars and bikes parked outside the museum, and the owners were giving free rides! There were bus rides to various parts of the city which seemed very popular. ALL the staff we spoke to were very nice. We then decided to visit... More

Thank you for visiting, and we are sorry you feel disappointed with our Easter Sunday event. Admission to the Museum through the year when our vehicles are not in action is normally £ 5. On our two 'Open Day' Sundays each year, as many as possible of our vehicles come out on to the road and offer rides, alongside a... More

My husband loved our trip to this museum, we were lucky enough to be there on Easter Sunday when they had an open day. It was mainly buses but what really made this trip was they were doing free rides in some vintage cars. We had a ride in an 1932 SS Jaguar 1 of only 3 in existence. If... More
