Navigation House is a fully refurbished grade II listed building that stands in the old wharf area of Sleaford known as Navigation Yard. Built in 1838, this former Sleaford Navigation Company Office is thought to be the only one of its kind left in existence and was used to administer the Sleaford Navigation which linked the town with navigable waters of the River Witham.

The building has interactive exhibits for all ages, as well as exhibitions and film footage for those who are fascinated by the history of trade and transport.
