Lovely small museum full of interesting things to see. Found the Agricultural part very good along with the history of the Tank development. Plenty to keep children amused with the play area in the central square. Free entry very unusual but think a small charge would be better than relying on people donating. Only drawback is lack of parking

I found out about 'The Museum of Lincolshire Life' via Tripadvisor and visited on a rainy and snowy Saturday in February. What a find! We were welcomed by a lovely lady who told us about the museum. Entry was FREE however we opted to pay £1.50 for an Interactive device, which explained more about the musuem. All I can say... More

Great place to spend a few hours learning about Lincolnshire and its people, customs and most of all its farming. The place is stuffed with memorabilia of rural life. Kids live it and adults can go down memory lane. Just wonderful.
