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

We have visited the museum before because my parents had both worked for Lincolnshire Road Company and we had given some old photos to the museum, but yesterday we went to one of their open days. We were met at the park and ride site by two double decker buses and given a free ride down to the museum and... More

The November bus day just gets better & better - 40 vehicles in service, with approx 100 buses in total at the event, taking into account the parked up visitors. To all the volunteers at LVVS, many thanks indeed for another fantastic day out - absolutely superb.

A very good Transport museum, with some rear vehicles on display. A Ruston car made in Lincoln eg. There are open days throughout the year when the preserved bus fleet is put into operation giving rides to visitors. Stagecoach buses run a service from Lincoln city centre with stops close to the museum.

WE visited this museum with a an open mind after reading some of the reviews, however have to agree with others. Mainly double decker buses [not cars as per photo] packed together so can only view the front and rear. A couple of the cars and bikes we museum quality, the rest interesting only.

Very sorry to hear that your visit was not as expected, as a working museum all of our vehicles are regularly taken out of display and used for events so do not all have dedicated parking spaces, this can mean that occasionally they can be parked back in the museum in positions that are not perfect for visits - we...

Ignore the one or two negative reviews - I had an excellent day. Plenty of old vehicles, including cars, vans, buses etc. And the highlight for me was the opportunity to ride in a number of them. I look forward to visiting again.
