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 our exhibitions, working machinery, activity areas and event days.
