The showcase of the steel city's industrial story - enjoy a great day out full of nostalgia & innovation!
Located in one of the city's oldest industrial districts, Kelham Island Museum stands on a man-made island over 900 years old. Our interactive galleries tell the story of light trades and skilled workmanship to mass production.
Learn what it was like to live and work in Sheffield during the Industrial Revolution and follow the sights and sounds of progress, through the Victorian era and two world wars, to discover how steel making forged the city of today and its impact on the modern world!
Kelham Island Museum includes the Melting Shop Children's Play Area, gift shop selling a unique range of 'Made in Sheffield' books, unique gifts, toys and jewellery and Little Mesters Cafe & Bistro.
