Things to do at Museum of Lincolnshire Life review

At the northeast of Lincoln, up past the castle, you will find the Museum of Lincolnshire Life. There is plenty to see there including many historically accurate rooms such as a living room, bedroom, stable, kitchens etc. They also have WW2 rooms and rooms full of all sorts of modes of transportation including a carriage hearse, penny farthings, tanks, tractors and much more. There are even some old train engines. Don’t rush your visit there as there is lots to read and explore.

Across from the old army barracks, they have lots of historically set up shop displays. Upstairs above the shops, there are more rooms to investigate including an old schoolroom.

There is also a playground in the centre of the courtyard with bunkers to run through, a shelter to sit in, wobble boards and much more. It’s a lovely and quirky playground. The museum always has a Children’s Museum Trail available to keep younger visitors amused and looking closely at their collection.

There are usually seasonal alternatives at Easter, Christmas and during the Summer Holiday. Please ask at reception when you arrive and the staff will be happy to explain how to become a History Hunter!
