The Museum's rich and varied social history collection reflects and celebrates the culture and heritage of Lincolnshire and its people. Exhibits illustrate commercial, domestic, military, agricultural, industrial and community life. As the home to an authentic World War One tank named 'Flirt' the Museum also houses the interactive galleries of the Royal Lincolnshire Regiment.

The Events and Exhibitions programme has something for all the family, from Victorian living history to Model Railways and Meccano.

The Museum always has a Children’s Museum Trail available to keep younger visitors amused and looking closely at the exhibits. There are usually seasonal alternatives at Easter, Christmas and during the Summer Holiday. Just ask at reception when you arrive and staff will be happy to explain how to become a History Hunter!

With so much to see the Museum is an ideal location for your group to visit and take a trip down memory lane. Self guided group visits are free but for a small charge staff can arrange a guided tour or a mystery object quiz.

The Museum has a number of 'loans boxes' that can be hired by community organisations or schools and offer the chance to discover and handle object from the past. Themes include WWII civilian and soilder, Evacuees, Technology of the Home and Toys.

The gift shop sells unusual gifts and toys, period postcards and a wide range of heritage books. Collections are made daily by the Royal Mail from the genuine Victorian Postbox so why not surprise your friends and family with a card stamped and posted from the Museum.
