The Museum of Lincolnshire Life is offering visitors an eye-opening look back at the county’s engineering heritage this weekend.

On Sunday, July 20, the museum will host Made in Lincolnshire, a celebration of the county’s engineering genius, artistic skill and pioneering spirit, past and present.

Visitors will be able to marvel at the magnificent steam engines and World War One tank that represent the high point in Lincolnshire’s engineering innovation.

There is also the chance to join in with skilled crafts people as they demonstrate other arts such as lace-making, spinning and weaving, stained glass making and much more.

And there will be non-stop entertainment throughout the day for the whole family, with tours, children’s storytime, folk dancing and performances of the historic Branston Plough Play.

The Museum of Lincolnshire Life is open from 10am to 4pm, with last admission at 3.30pm. Entry is free.
