I had an excellent time perusing the information displayed in this museum. Would never have thought Grantham had such claims to fame. Lots of fascinating history displayed well. Would definitely recommend popping in to this museum.

We came here for the second year running to see the panto! Fantastic again. Great cast, funny show and a well stocked cafe to fill up before, during and after. Well done to all involved. We loved it. Coming back next year!!

Interesting to me because of the R.A.F. Dambusters, and Margaret Thatcher. More local history in the Wetherspoons pub nearby.

Brilliant little museum with so much to learn. Had a truly wonderful time here and hope the volunteers are able to keep this going. A wonderful little find.

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit - separate sections on The Dambusters, Grantham during the Second World War, Isaac Newton (schooled in the town), shopping through the ages and of course Margaret Thatcher. The museum was fairly small but for me this was perfect as it didn't...More

This small museum offers a free timeline of Granthams long history and was very enjoyable to walk around.

The museum is very small (as expected) but it only has a hand full of things to see which makes it even more disappointing. We had seen all there was to see in about 10 minutes.
