The museum is marking its 50th anniversary with a weekend of family fun.
On Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 July, the popular Lincoln attraction will have a host of activities on offer, including:
- Hands-on crafts
- A museum trail for children
- Penny farthing demonstrations
In addition, the traditional sweet shop will be open, and children will also have a chance to produce a print on the Victorian printing press.
There will also be a special exhibition in the Gatehouse Gallery, featuring photographs of the museum’s official opening in July 1969 and a varied selection of objects from its past, many of which have not been on show for years.
Cllr Nick Worth, executive member for heritage, said: “After 50 years, the Museum of Lincolnshire Life is still going strong and attracting thousands of people each year.
“The museum is now a part of the county’s history itself and we’ll have a special exhibition telling its story through the years.
“There’s also a range of fun activities going on, making it a great way to kick-start your summer holidays.
“So come along and join in the celebrations.”
Over the weekend, the museum will be operating a ‘pay-what-you-decide’ approach, with visitors able to choose how much to donate for entry.
