The Collection brings together an award-winning archaeology museum and the region’s premier art gallery, the Usher Gallery, in the heart of historic Lincoln.

Come face to face with Lincolnshire’s earliest inhabitants in the museum and explore the wonderful art collections in the Usher Gallery before relaxing in the Stokes at The Collection cafe. Discover Play, our exciting space for younger visitors and enjoy our vibrant exhibition programme.

The art collection primarily housed within The Usher Gallery includes a wide range of fine and decorative art including paintings by De Wint, Turner, Piper and Lowry as well as works by contemporary artists such as Terry Frost and the 2004 Turner Prize winner Grayson Perry.

Learning Programmes:

As well as the free museum, there is also a vibrant schools education programme. These workshops require booking in advance and there is a fee, but the feedback from teachers (and pupils) is fantastic. 

Workshops can be booked for Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays.

All the workshops below are available all year:

- Romans 

- Anglo Saxons 

- Medieval

- Vikings 

- Ancient Egypt 

- Ancient Greece 

- Dinosaurs

Pupils can experience object handling through our Big Dig archaeology activity, act in dramas, march like a Roman soldier, partake in an Anglo-Saxon autopsy,  take staff-led tours of the galleries and make artefact-based crafts to take home. 

Talk to a member of the education team to get the most from your visit. If you are a KS3 or KS4 teacher wishing to book a visit, we can tailor your visit to suit your needs. 

Contact a member of the education team for details.
