Please check our website for any last minute changes to opening hours. Bishops' House is the best surviving example of a timber framed house in Sheffield. As well as being a treasured part of Sheffield's architectural heritage, the building is also a museum containing exhibitions on life in the 16th and 17th centuries with two rooms decorated in Jacobean Style. Bishops' House has been managed on behalf of Sheffield City Council since 2011 by The Friends of Bishops' House, a charity run entirely by volunteers, with exhibits still being curated by Museums Sheffield.

After 11 years of not seeing this place it was interesting to go back but sad to see how deteriorated this has become, which is understandable with the age of the museum. Staff warned us upon entry that some of the floor can be unstable,...More
