Welcome to Sleaford Museum...    Sharing Our Stories

Sleaford's Museum of local history in its specially designed building is home to artefacts and stories that portray fascinating aspects of the town and area's unique past. Exhibitions in its colourful interior change frequently and visitors are united in their praise.  Admission is free, but your donations are welcomed and much appreciated to help us to cover essential costs and to fund new exhibitions. A range of local history books, booklets, postcards, pens, key-rings etc can be purchased.  The Museum is a completely volunteer run organisation and a registered charity.

Since opening in 2015, over 16000 visitors have joined us to celebrate sharing the stories of Sleaford people.


The launch begins at 11am on Saturday 9th July and is to be opened by Mayor of Sleaford, Linda Edwards-Shea, with the Town Crier in attendance.  Packs of our newly created Top Trumps showcasing heritage venues in Sleaford and surrounding villages will be on sale, and other activities are available.

Join us on a short family walk around Sleaford to see some of the hidden heritage gems in the town centre. Inspired by the Sleaford Explorer Trail and the newly printed Sleaford Heritage Trumps cards, we will take you on a tour of some of the key heritage sites just off the High Street. Designed for families with children, we’ll have a little bit of history at each stop, but the tour will take between 30-45 minutes before returning to Sleaford Museum.

This guided walk is part of the Sleaford Trump Card Launch event at Sleaford Museum on Saturday 9th July from just after the 11am launch.

Please note the tour does take place around the centre of the town. Adults must supervise children at all times as we will be walking along, and crossing, some roads.

Walking tour is FREE to join, but booking is essential.
