Textbook example of a great museum. Social history laid out for all to see. Accessible, cleverly done and lots of pertinent information. The butchers shop recreation was great, as was the display of 'Painted Fabrics Limited'. The whole place had a feeling of being packed with information and things to look at, but was never cluttered.
All the staff I spoke to were cheerful and very helpful and friendly.
The lady in the gift shop even said 'Thank you for coming in'. Lovely touch.

Lovely place for people who work close by. Great place to sit and eat your lunch. A museum to visit too.

One of the best places to take children in Sheffield - also enjoyable for adults too. there are various interactive sections for children with buttons to press, play dolls house, costumes, and drawing etc.

for adults the history of Sheffield, treasures of the world and art gallery may be of interest. some beautiful historical artefacts. easy to leisurely spend lots of time here, or similarity to walk around and see everything in a short time.

I especially enjoyed the taxidermy butterflies which are kept in pull-out drawers under some of the exhibition pieces.

on site café and gift shop, surrounded by beautifully kept gardens with benches. on street parking nearby on mushroom lane (single yellows, pay on weekday).
