The six year old enjoyed this but it was probably beyond the four year old. There is no entry fee as such but you can pay for the quiz sheet. The highlight is the tank. There is limited parking immediately outside.

Spent 3 1/2 hours here there is sooo much to see! Recreated rooms such as parlour, kitchen, school room and lots more. Nice little cafe too, and secondhand book shop.

a small museum but one full of interesting artifacts and exhibits on Lincolnshire life from years gone by. I really liked the info on the Royal Lincolnshire Regiment and the farm equipment . There is no entrance fee but a donation is most welcome

Fascinating! A glimpse back in time. I learned a lot about the regiment and was fascinated by their history.

We came here to look at Lincolnshire history and to see how my relatives of yesteryear lived. We particularly enjoyed the retail exhibits and tractors.
