"Fascinating Town History"

Reviewed April 2017

"Free Admission. Close to Town Centre. Well worth a visit - knowledgeable and witty staff (12/04/17) explained about the history of the town and how the old house (the Canal Superintendents Office) was rescued when derelict. Full of guides for Town and area, lots for adults and children to look at both downstairs and upstairs. Allow 1/2 hour to browse around and get a clear picture of why Sleaford was so rich between 1780 and 1870. Perfect place to start a guided walking tour of Sleaford."

"Good Local History"

Reviewed 25 October 2016

"This place really explains how it all worked in Sleaford during the Industrial Revolution to the early 20th Century."

"Lovely Small Attraction"

Reviewed 13 September 2016

"Visited Navigation House and visitor centre as part of the Heritage Open Day in September. We didn't know about it before. The member of staff was very friendly and welcoming and gave us a brief history of what the house was originally used for and left us to have a look around at our own speed. There are two floors, the stairs are quite small and steep but everything is well laid out and easy to see everything. There are a few interactive exhibits which are ideal for children while you read about its past."


"We really liked the snakes and ladders type game on the second floor - great for the adults too! There are a couple of rooms downstairs as well and plenty of leaflets and information of other places to visit in the area.
A very enjoyable visit. There is a large pay and display car park a short walk away and even better it is free on Sundays."

"Really Good"

Reviewed March 2016

"Lovely little museum, definitely worth a visit if in the area. A nice walk up the river to the water mill too, especially on a sunny day."

"Interesting"

Reviewed November 2015

"This is quite a small museum and there aren't many relics on display. Most of the museum is made up of information boards, some of which are quite interesting, and there are some good interactive things for the kids. Free admission so do pop in but there isn't a great deal to see."

"Guided Tour at Navigation House"

"Most enjoyable visit! We were given a warm welcome and historical guide by the charming lady on duty - who also pointed us to a nearby pub with a 2 for £10 lunch deal! Thank you!"
