We went on a free open day for attractions in Lincolnshire. I expect I would have paid anyway as it is a most interesting place. As others have said, you need to read the guide and tie that up with the exhibits. Unfortunately having read it again back home I realise that several items in the guide weren't on display... More

This little museum has some very interesting exhibits, especially busses and trucks, but unfortunately space is limited and the vehicles are not very accessible. The lighting could also be improved.

Although this attraction was closed on the day we visited, the gentleman who was working there showed us around. So many vintage buses, cars, bikes, motor bikes and more to see. Will definitely return in the summer.

This is a well presnted, clean and tidy bus museum. The staff are friendly and helpful. Even as someone who isn't a bus enthusiast, this was an ok museum.

I was a little disappointed with the presentation of the exhibits. All crowded together and unavailable to get down between the exhibits. But space costs money. The work that has been done on the vehicles is brilliant. The guide book is a must for the explanation of the vehicles.

The museum is staffed by real enthusiasts who have had a personal stake in the vehicles on display. The descriptions in front of each vehicle are informative and detailed but the people working there are also able to fill in on any missing details. We went there with two young kids and they were able to go inside the vehicles... More

This is a medium sized transport museum focusing on local exhibits to the Lincoln / Lincolnshire area from bikes to buses and lots of transport related items. The biggest part of the collection is buses. The majority of the restored exhibits are in fantastic condition - clearly a labour of love. All exhibits are clean and tidy and yes they... More
