About Museum of Lincolnshire Life

Enjoy an educational adventure into the past with a trip to The Museum of Lincolnshire Life. Boasting one of Lincoln’s largest and most diverse collections, this unique visitor experience charts the lives and culture of the people of Lincolnshire from 1750 to the present day. Each section of the attraction is dedicated to a different element of local customs, including areas for agricultural, commercial, community, domestic and industrial life. Housed within a Victorian military barracks originally used by the Royal North Lincoln Militia, you’ll also find displays dedicated to the army’s Royal Lincolnshire Regiment. With almost 250,000 artefacts including a genuine First World War tank, it celebrates the region’s proud military history over the past two centuries.

How to get to Museum of Lincolnshire Life

The Museum of Lincolnshire Life can be found at the northern edges of central Lincoln, around 400 metres from the Castle and Cathedral. If you’re planning to drive into the area to visit, there are no motorways nearby but there is a good network of A roads running towards and around the city, with the A57 and A15 being the handiest options depending on your direction. To travel in by train, you’ll be best catching a service into Lincoln Central Station and completing the 20 minute walk north to reach the museum. Rail services run into Lincoln from places like Doncaster, Leicester, London, Nottingham and Sheffield. If you’d rather avoid the walk, you can hop on the number 3 or 7 Simplibus services beside the station, and both have a stop within 150 metres of the Museum entrance.
