  • A lovely place to spend time. Loads of memory-inducing stuff. Some amazing facts about how Lincoln has contributed to the history of this country. Free entry and a nice little cafe. Well worth a visit. Tourists and locals will learn a lot about our great city visiting this little gem.
  • Nice little place to visit. Small playground for the kids, tea shop and of course the museum, for which you'll need to appreciate agricultural machines to get the most out of. Pleasant place
  • Beautiful setting with great content. If anything it could do with more space! Good children's trail activities too.
  • Great place, free entry, outdoor play area for children, cheap cafe, lovely staff and make sure you see the upstairs part when you go in as I missed it on our first few visits and it's great!
  • Museum is ok, and live performance informative, ladies on the desk not really on the ball, they for got to mention Easter treasure hunt and we had to ask for map and where to go ! Basics that should just come naturally when taking your money
