Just love this little museum. Another visit with my daughter and enjoyed again. Nothing like London museums obviously but children can gain so much knowledge about the past by spending an hour or two here. Go have a look.

Lovely small museum full of interesting things to see. Found the Agricultural part very good along with the history of the Tank development. Plenty to keep children amused with the play area in the central square. Free entry very unusual but think a small charge would be better than relying on people donating. Only drawback is lack of parking

See how life in Lincolnshire impacted on all of the family members. Great exhibits and guides on hand to give in depth knowledge. A wide range of subjects to keep all of the members of the family engaged.

I found out about 'The Museum of Lincolshire Life' via Tripadvisor and visited on a rainy and snowy Saturday in February. What a find! We were welcomed by a lovely lady who told us about the museum. Entry was FREE however we opted to pay £1.50 for an Interactive device, which explained more about the musuem. All I can say... More
