Was looking forward to this visit with it's Industrial history, unfortunately I arrived 30 minutes to late as it closed at 1500. I had not anticipated arriving late in Sheffield and getting there via tram and walking there! Must do more research before going again. Could not comment on the museum really that's why I have given an "Average" Rate your experience.

A great place to visit to learn about Sheffield’s heritage. There is a small admission charge payable but well worth it. This museum has the UK’s largest only working steam engine. It operates two times a day. You can learn so much about Sheffield’s history. There are some cafes outside for drinks and refreshments. Very easy to spend hand a day here. They give you a map when you arrive to help you find your way around

This museum has some fantastic exhibits from when “Made in Sheffield” meant the best. Unfortunately the River Don Engine wasn’t running the day that we were there, which was a shame. There is a cafeteria adjacent to the museum with a good choice of refreshments. We walked to the museum but there is a reasonably sized car park at the museum. Recommended to pass a couple of hours, especially if the River Don Engine is running.
