A fascinating place to visit, do not miss this if you're a new visitor to Sheffield, there are some amazing exhibits including the River Don engine and the gigantic old bessamer converter (used for making steel.) Check what's on as the museum regularly host specialist events such as craft fairs. When you've finished at the museum, as you're in the heart of one of Sheffield's best areas for pubs, visit the nearby Kelham Island Tavern, The Fat Cat, The Riverside, The Harlequin, The Ship or The Shakespeare for a flavour of authentic Sheffield with fantastic ranges of real ales.

Every person should go here, Sheffield has a proud history to wear, and I am glad my Dad's folk came from here!

We spent a morning here - we do spend a long time in museums! Be there at midday to see the engine working, it's impressive

Our recent family wedding was held at Kelham Island Museum. The venue was fantastic in terms of interest, originality and the wonderful staff. We cannot thank them enough for all of their help in making it a day to remember.
