A gem
Oct 2019 • Friends
What a wonderful addition to the town. Full of interesting things and what an imaginative thing to convert a form public toilet into. The two people on duty were very welcoming and knowledgeable. We were even given a free reusable water to fill from the newly reopened fountain in the town square.

The museum lies near the monument on the high street. although it gives a good history of the town it's very small mainly just one tiny room.

Excellent Local Museum

This is a great small Museum with so much inside and friendly staff members. Really enjoyed visiting and reading about local history. There is always something new to discover.

Lovely town museum
Feb 2019
The Museum is small, but packs a tremendous number of displays and artefacts into its ‘tardis-like’ interior. Recently refurbished with sparkling new display cabinets, it was looking bright and colourful - a very interesting display on Sleaford Workhouse, and also exhibits from the local church and Sleaford shopping in days gone by. Even some saucy postcards!
A really interesting place to visit.

Disappointing
Jul 2018 • Family
Would have been nice to look round on our own. Unfortunately we were pounced on by the people ‘ in charge’ who talked incessantly. Perhaps there were things worth seeing, but we didn’t manage to see them. Don’t bother going.

We appreciate your frank comments but feel it is disappointing that you didn't manage to see the interesting variety of exhibitions on display last July. Our friendly volunteers try to make visitors welcome and are eager to share their wealth of knowledge. However, you only had to say 'thank you, but we would prefer to look round on our own' then you could have browsed at your leisure.

good place
Oct 2017 • Couples
This is easy to find as it is in center of town. Nice helpful volunteers who gave us a map of town and marked every place we wanted visit for us.(we had not been to town before) The museum is light and bright and well laid out,really interesting local information about people and buildings round town. A area with bygone toy building sets which brought back memories (we are a bit/// aged) Would like to visit again when more time.

A little treasure
Aug 2017 • Couples
This is a tiny museum but full of interesting objects. When we visited there was a special exhibition on the history of the Sharpes Seeds company which used to be a large employer in the area. The museum is staffed by very knowledgeable local people who make excellent guides.

A Little Gem!
Jul 2017 • Solo
I found this museum on my last visit to Sleaford but unfortunately it was closed.

I'm so glad I tried again. This museum is brilliant, a gem of a place. It's not very large - perhaps the size of a portakabin - but it's crammed with exhibits about agriculture, local Inns, schooling, and even how 'Kesteven County Asylum' pioneered plastic surgery for burned airmen in WWII.

It just goes to show that size isn't important, it's what you do with it. It's well laid out and there's such a range of exhibits all of which are excellent quality. Amazingly it's also FREE although donations are welcome. It's also worth visiting nearbyt Navigation House, - also free - as the two complement each other!

Well done!

Lovely small museum
Jun 2017 • Family
This is a lovely little museum. Despite the small size it still finds space for a children's dressing up area.
A good cross section of displays about local trades and crafts.
