Alma Street, Sheffield, S3 8RY, United Kingdom | 0114 2722106 | Website

Venue Description

Located in one of the city’s oldest industrial districts, the museum stands on a man-made island over 900 years old. Kelham Island Museum was opened in 1982 to house the objects, pictures and archive material representing Sheffield’s industrial story. Our 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!


The displays and facilities at Kelham Island Museum enable everyone to enjoy and explore Sheffield’s industrial heritage. The museum is surrounded by traditional cobbled paving but a firm and level footpath has been installed.
