Under this scheme visitors are offered a choice of Standard or Gift Aid admission. Gift Aid admission includes a 10 per cent voluntary donation. Gift Aid admissions enable Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust to reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to Museum funds. The extra £0.50p paid under the scheme can be worth over £1.20 to Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust. Conditions apply.
Located in our new Learning Centre with indoor seating and outdoor picnic area, the Waterwheels Café serving hot and cold drinks and light refreshments, cakes and sandwiches is the perfect place to relax and admire the heritage site.
Our museum shop sells a variety of Sheffield, Made goods, from greeting cards and novelties to local interest books and gifts.
We’re improving our visitor experience for all through our Access all Areas project.
