Located in one of the city’s oldest industrial districts, the museum stands on a man-made island over 900 years old.

Interactive galleries tell the story from light trades and skilled workmanship to mass production and 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 steelmaking forged both the city of today and the world!

See the mighty River Don Engine in steam!
