“Interesting and interactive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

Great to see the industry that Sheffield was built on. On top of that there are other displays for general life and living.

“Interesting and informative”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

Great little museum if you are interested in the history of Sheffield Industry, not a great deal to keep younger children entertained but a good museum for anyone interested in local heritage.

“Museum with a difference....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Museum's are not my normal cup-of-tea but this is local industrial history with wider effects, such as the provisions of industry to war efforts and heavy production. It shows our past history. Try and visit when the River Don Engine is going to be started up - you will be amazed! Talk about boiling a kettle - you've never seen anything like this massive engine working.
