  • Such an amazing museum and with free entry. There is no way to fault it. The museum has evolved, so much, since I first visited as a Schoolboy. The exhibits are well laid out and annotated. Technology...  more »
  • This is an excellent Museum located just a few hundred metres from Lincoln Castle. Entry is free and there is free parking both in front and beside the Museum, although parking spaces are very limited...  more »
  • Found the museum very interesting and would recommend to couples or family's . Can go on a hot day or when it's raining plenty to see under cover  more »

  • we enjoyed visiting here.. very family friendly,and good for the kids to learn things..cafe to eat.and staff very friendly
  • A really odd collection, that is quite revealing of life in Lincolnshire. A nice play area for the kids.
  • Outstanding. See the origins of the tank. Live action exhibits on some weekends.
  • Small but very educational museum. Recommended to visit (bring kids as well) :)
