Kelham Island Museum, Sheffield

Of the main Sheffield attractions this is the best for a real hands-on experience of the city's manufacturing and steel-making history. In fact, it may be one of the most interactive museums you’ll ever visit! Kelham Island Museum stands on a man-made island over 900 years old in the River Don.

It opened in 1982, just as the city's industrial age was ending. Sheffield was nicknamed the ‘Steel City’ for good reason, and the metal works of smelting and forging dominated. With several interactive galleries, numerous on-site craftsmen and great learning resources for children, you also get the chance to see and handle rare equipment and tools. Plus, the museum houses the largest surviving steam engine in England.

It’s the place to visit in Sheffield to find out about local specialist trades, of which cutlery was the most famous. The museum provides a real contrast to the futuristic design of the nearby Winter Garden. Also not very far away are the peaceful Sheffield Botanical Gardens.
