Museum of Lincolnshire Life
Enjoy free entry, except for some event days, to the largest and most diverse community museum in Lincolnshire. Exhibits illustrate commercial, domestic, agricultural, industrial and community life.
The museum has built up a collection of over 250,000 objects and visitors can enjoy our wonderful social history collection, with a working Victorian kitchen and printing press during special event days.
Our rich and varied social history collection reflects and celebrates the culture of Lincolnshire and its people from 1750 to the present day.
Exhibits illustrate commercial, domestic, agricultural, industrial and community life.
As the home to an authentic World War One tank named “Daphne” we also house the interactive galleries of the Royal Lincolnshire Regiment, which have won prestigious national awards. Perhaps you can find information about family members who served here?
We are pleased to offer a wide range of services including exhibitions in our community gallery, group quiz sessions and an education programme linked to the National Curriculum. We also have a number of ’loans boxes’ which can be hired by community organisations or schools and offer the chance to discover and handle object from the past.
Close to the museum you can visit the working 18th century windmill, Ellis Mill, run entirely by the museum’s volunteer millers (weekends only).
