  • After living away for the last 10 years it was lovely to come back here for a visit with my baby. It was great to see some familiar exhibits from my childhood and I was really impressed with the new additions and the interactive children's area. I really like how all the items are curated. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the court yard cafe is such a great addition! Great to see it breastfeeding friendly, and the buggy park is very useful. We had a lovely lunch in the courtyard. Museum is very clean, tidy and we'll maintained. brought back some nice memories and I will definitely be returning on my next visit back to scunthorpe.
  • Fantastic local museum filled with so many finds from the area. Need a good few hours to see it all properly
  • I have been to the north Lincolnshire museum many times and yet I still have lots of fun looking at the features like the marine life as you enter and the world war 2 show case of the bunker. The cafe is also good but they could have more of a variety of food.
  • Always love going here. They make it so interesting for kids with different themes during the holidays
  • The Museum has been renovated and is fantastic for under 5's. Museum minis is one of the best activities for under 5's in Scunthorpe and it's free. Staff are all excellent, friendly and helpful .
