Open Day - Sunday 27 March 2016
We were very fortunate to have a sunny day before Easter Monday's storms - and a healthy number of visitors came to our regular 'start of season' event.
Seven of the Museum's cars took to the road and were kept busy offering rides, and 28 buses and coaches, ranging from 1920s to the 1990s, operated our park and ride service and regular services to Lincoln city centre and to Doddington Hall and the Natural World Centre, Whisby, as well as local tours - including the chance for a 'bracing' ride on the Grimsby - Cleethorpes open top bus!
