Kelham Island Museum

Located in one of the city’s oldest industrial districts, this fascinating museum dedicated to the city’s rich industrial heritage stands on a man-made island over 900 years old. The museum was opened in 1982 to house artefacts, pictures and archive material documenting Sheffield’s industrial story. State of the art interactive galleries tell the story from light trades and skilled workmanship to mass production allowing you to discover what it was like to live and work in Sheffield during the Industrial Revolution.

Follow the growth of the steel city through the Victorian Era and two world wars to see how steel-making impacted not only Sheffield but the world. Before returning to your hotel be sure to visit the atmospheric Victorian Christmas Market too for a glimpse of Christmas Past.
