Visitors to the Museum of Lincolnshire Life will have a chance to explore Lincoln’s engineering history like never before thanks to a new exhibit.

The museum on Burton Road will host its ‘miniature models’ exhibition from February 10 – 11 and will display a series of industrial and agricultural models that reflect the ingenuity and development of farming and industry in Lincolnshire.

The exhibition includes a range of items from the museum’s stores and will also feature a piece from Lincoln-born engineer and steam engine developer, Nathaniel Clayton.
