Clifton House, built in 1783, was the home of Joshua Walker and his family who were wealthy industrialists and ran Rotherham Iron works.

Clifton House has been Rotherham’s Museum since 1893.

The Museum has fascinating period rooms and exhibits to explore, including an early Rotherham Gallery with artefacts from the Stone Age, Bronze Age, and Roman period. There are also interesting Victorian and ceramics galleries, including a working Victorian Kitchen Range which provides an engaging interactive learning experience for schools.

Within the Museum there is a York and Lancaster Regimental Museum featuring First and Second World War Galleries, as well as Rotherham’s Archives and Local Studies Service.
