  • A cosy and resourceful museum that displays the Lincolnshire culture. It is nice to have a lovely time here wandering around learning about the history of the area, with a huge amount of collection. The cafe in the museum also a good place to take a rest after a long walk.
  • This museum go the extra mile to make history come to life with a great volunteer group. However they are letting down the windmill which is also managed by them nearby. No toilets at the mill - vistors can use museum main facilities but they close on Sundays in the winter. This effectively forces the windmill to stay closed on Sundays during the winter too. Having spent millions on the display for recent world war displays I would like to see a just few thousand spent on the windmill which is absolutely amazing, working and run by a seperate group of dedicated volunteers. Come on LCC spend some money on this gem too.
  • Love this place it's magical and the staff are amazing
  • Small but very educational museum. Recommended to visit (bring kids as well) :)
  • Varied aspects of Lincolnshire and a great world war 1 tank
