Sheffield Industrial Museums are the showcase of Sheffield’s industrial story from early industrialisation to modern times, where ‘Made in Sheffield’ remains a mark of craftsmanship and quality known worldwide.

Discover how steelmaking forged the city of today and its impact on the modern world!

Our three unique heritage sites and museums across Sheffield reveal more about the growth of the steel city.

Kelham Island Museum’s interactive galleries tell the story of light trades and skilled workmanship to mass production. Catch a unique glimpse of life at home and at work at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet, an 18th century scythe and steelworks or discover Shepherd Wheel, a unique example of Sheffield’s Knife grinding industry.

Enjoy a great family day out full of nostalgia and innovation!
