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!
A warm Dickensian welcome awaits at our biggest event of the year. Join us for festive fun and shopping as we celebrate our 25th silver anniversary year!
