Play at The Collection Museum

Collection is an ideal space for families to enjoy in Lincoln. Children can design their own Roman Shield or Medieval Pot, identify fascinating objects in our Lift the Flap activity and Touchy Feely Boxes or just relax in our large comfy window seat. The ideal place to enjoy reading one of our many story time books. There is also a cushioned play area for babies with soft toys and activity rattles.
Children can pick up a themed backpack and carry on the playtime in the museum and gallery. The museum has much to appeal to older children as well with computer interactives, mosaic making, trails and games. A visit to The Collection will inspire and delight your family in equal measure.
