Kelham Island Museum

In line with government restrictions, Kelham Island Museum, Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet and Shepherd Wheel Workshop remain closed for now.

We will reopen as soon as possible following national guidelines and will keep you updated of any changes through our website and social media channels.  If you have any queries, please contact ask@simt.co.uk

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

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!
