Kelham Island Museum

Kelham Island Museum was opened in 1982 to house the objects, pictures and archive material representing Sheffield’s industrial story. The displays at the Museum tell that story from the “Little Mester” to mass production, skilled workers, revolutionary processes, quality products, invention and innovation.

Located in one of the city’s oldest industrial districts, the Museum stands on a man-made island over 900 years old. Inside the Museum buildings, you can witness the sights and sounds of industrial Sheffield through exhibitions, working machinery, activity areas and event days.
