Q. What does the Museum provide?
A. Ayscoughfee Hall Museum is one of the best in the region. Housed in a fifteenth century merchant's townhouse, the Museum tells the story of this wonderful building's history and development. Aimed at all ages, objects, models and interactives are used to bring Ayscoughfee's five hundred year journey to life.
The Museum also explores the story of the South Lincolnshire Fens and the lives of the people who have lived on them from the earliest times to the present day.
Various exhibitions are held in the Hall and the Gallery is available for events. Visit Geest Gallery to find out more about the Gallery and how to book an event or exhibition.
