This museum is free and packed with exhibits ranging in size from lace bobbins to steam ploughing machines. mainly based indoors there are some interactive displays. I enjoyed the row of old shops with photos of the actual shops and proprietors. There is a child play area, cafe and gift shop. Well worth a trip

They staff are so helpful and friendly. It's free but can purchase audio and visual guide that is completely interactive. For students that are engaged, is my recommendation. Although it is interesting and informative about Lincolnshire history, it is niche. Would definately recommend.

We visited in September when the weather wasn't great and this entertained us fir a couple of hour. Interesting for all ages and the children enjoyed looking for the trail clues. Would recommend and return.

I have been here a number of times with my children. It has a few different areas to look round and also has a cafe and small shop. Both of my kids have enjoyed visiting. It doesn't take very long - I would say a couple of hours at most but it's free to enter and worth a visit.

This is a must see if you like local history. The museum covers a range of topics such as how people used to live, shop displays and layouts, a schoolroom, militaria, farming and associated equipment, transport and steam engines. Entrance is free.

Great couple of hours spent here. Learnt a lot about the history of Lincoln and, in particular, the importance of the tank. Definetely recommend for anyone with an interest in history and for youngsters too. Playground for them and value for money cafe.
