Visited here with my husband in the late summer.. First time we've been for over 20 years since our children were small, what wonderful change they have made over the years, something for everyone to enjoy, from war time memorabilia to quaint old shops and living quarters of times past ..Amazing and an absolute must for anyone visiting Lincoln ..

This museum is free and packed with exhibits ranging in size from lace bobbins to steam ploughing machines. mainly based indoors there are some interactive displays. I enjoyed the row of old shops with photos of the actual shops and proprietors. There is a child play area, cafe and gift shop. Well worth a trip
