Driving through Lincoln is like visiting a shire from a previous era; it's hard to describe the beautiful setting for this museum. We went for the special exhibition "Cool Medium: Art, Television & Psychedelia, 1960-1980," as well as for the related (in my opinion) exhibit...More

This contemporary art museum and sculpture park is in a very pretty setting. Like much of contemporary art, the exhibits can be very hit or miss, and it is worth checking the website to see if anything appears to be of interest. In warm weather...More

Four hours is more than enough. If weather permits, taking a guided trip of the Sculpture Park is great. I think 90 mins. for the inside exhibits is my personal limit. And it is worth taking some time in the gift shop.
