Attraction Information

North Lincolnshire Museum
With plenty for the kids and a new archaeology gallery, the North Lincs Museum has a lot to offer!
The interactive Go Wild section allows kids to get hands on with things like fossils, birds and animals, but there are also interactive elements available relating to the exhibitions at the time. They always try to incorporate something to help keep the kids happy, often involving materials for dressing up, art projects and games. The organised Artyfact sessions run weekends and bank holidays and the kids always produce something to take home with them; families are also welcome to the free, drop in Museum Mayhem holiday activity sessions too! Plus free Under 5s' drop in sessions take place every Friday afternoon during term time.
There are also a variety of fun family trails provided around the museum too, where kids who can complete the clues will be awarded with a cool sticker!
A word of warning about the People's War exhibit: there are convincing war time sound affects which nervous types may find worrying.
