So much to see and do. Would be especially good for children as lots of activities for them to enjoy. Something for a wide range of interests from domestic to military history. Definitely worth a visit and staff very helpful. Fully wheelchair accessible too.

I have been more than once as I find the contents of the site very full filing and so much to see and for kids to do by taking part in some areas, they would call it playing, the fact is every area one gains information from. #kids enjoy playing without the understanding they are also learning, parents are happy...

Absolutely great day out with the kids.. for free! The displays were excellent, just the right mix of information and artefacts to keep the kids interested. There is a school upstairs which was good fun. Definitely worth a visit!

Visited here with my husband in the late summer.. First time we've been for over 20 years since our children were small, what wonderful change they have made over the years, something for everyone to enjoy, from war time memorabilia to quaint old shops and living quarters of times past ..Amazing and an absolute must for anyone visiting Lincoln ..

We have been several times over the last few years. We always enjoy the museum and often take visitors with us. It is full of local history and a must see for anyone interested in Lincolnshire past.

This is like a little treasure cove. Lots of olde world rooms to explore which fascinated my boys. Then onto some old engines and tractors was even better. The outdoor play area is lovely on a dry day and you can sit and have a drink and snack from the coffee shop. We went on bikes and there is a... More

After being advised by my Daughter to visit it, I was amazed at the set up, it is well worth a visit, and would you believe its free entry. It has displays of the manufacturing that was carried out in the past in Lincolnshire, Rushton hornsby and the like, from Farm equipment to an early Tank , tractors, railway engine,... More
