“Such a brilliant interesting museum for kids and adults!!! and it's FREE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Free admission but when you have looked around this place you will be happy to make a donation. It has rooms set up as different types of shops/occupations and a huge collection of vehicles, farming and industrial machinery including a Tank!! Really lovely helpful staff and a play area for the children. Dressing up and taking part in the Victorian classroom. We got there late afternoon and it was closing at 4 so we had a bit of a rushed visit but we will definately go back again. Brilliant value.

“better than the last time we visited”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

This used to be really good years ago, with so much about Lincolnshire life. It is more modern now. Has a good small childrens play area. Old fashioned 'rooms' - good for reminiscing . Highlights are the tank and the old urinal (not in use!) Has displays of agricultural machinery etc.

We were fascinated by the amount of exhibits in this museum and many bring back memories of my early days. Well worth a visit

Loved the layout, lots of very interesting exhibits with a very nice tea shop at the end. Only dislike is that it was all over to quickly.

“A wonderfully evocative view of life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

The kids loved it, "Did Granma really live like this?" ""Wow!" Beautifully laid out in rooms and also the the transport and farming areas. Very good descriptions of items, etc. Easy to spend far too long there since there is so much stuff in the collections.
