“Great for the kids but space wasn't utilised well”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

Although the museum is very modern and has a nice cafe, I felt as if there were too many bare walls and too few artifacts on display. We got round the museum very quickly, and felt as if it was more aimed at school parties than adults.

Although it is sometimes nice to see modern relics, it seemed quite out of place to see modern items such as bags and other items on display. This was mainly demonstrated in the "Treasures" section, where we expected to see more older artifacts, which overall turned out very disappointing.

However, we would definitely recommend the museum as a valuable learning experience for younger visitors.

“Interesting interactive museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

Very interesting museum to know the history of Sheffield. It has got many interactive activities so kids will have a great time. I particularly liked the room dedicated to the history of sport.
After visiting the museum, take a walk around Weston Park. Such a nice green space so near the city centre.

“Fab for young children - so many interactive activities.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2011

What a gem this was to find on my weekend break with my seven year old daughter. We lost ourselves doing all the interactive activities for 2 and a half hours. I have never been to a museum so child-centred. Brilliant. Very friendly staff and good toilets, cafe etc.
