The Woodhall Spa Cottage Museum, Woodhall Spa
(4.6/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Woodhall Spa Cottage Museum is a joy to explore and packed with intriguing stories and displays about Woodhall Spa, the local area and the Wield family, who lived in the building from 1887 until the 1960’s. The Museum building itself is an important Museum exhibit. It is a rare surviving example of a bungalow constructed of corrugated iron on a wooden frame that was erected in the late nineteenth century. John Wield (1877-1965) was a keen photographer and his photographic collection is the basis of the Museum. The collection of images is a unique and valuable record of life in Woodhall Spa and includes images of both people and the local area.

  • Had such a wonderful time in Woodhall Spa it is a stunning village. The Museum is a must see it is housed in an old prefab (I remember them when I was a child in the 60's!) It was full of interesting ...  more »
  • Very informative of time gone by. There is a room set out with photography equipment together with a commentary video. It is set out with a lot of old memoribillia. Worth a visit if in the area. 
  • Cheap and a good example of how times used to be. The kids loved it playing with the old games.
  • Wonderfully maintained building, cheap entry fee and great staff. The museum is very much a 'touch and feel' museum with plenty of drawers to open and other things to explore. Provides a good insight into a previous time and the history of the local area. Would always recommend to anyone remotely interested in anything of this sort.
  • Fantastic insight into life at the turn of the century, that is the 20th century
  • They have done a great refurbishment job to bring fresh life into the displays. Very interesting for very little money
