Located in one of the city’s oldest industrial districts, Kelham Island museum stands on a man-made island over 900 years old. The museum first opened in 1982 to house the objects, pictures and archive material representing Sheffield’s industrial story.

Its 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.
