  • This museum is a treat. Numerous excellent displays, working engines, and helpful staff. I thought it would take about an hour, but spent almost three hours enjoying the museum. Informative for a variety of age groups. Good selection of books on industry and Sheffield history. Easy access from the tram line or by walking along the river path. The map on the website is too conceptual to be useful. Suggest a link to google maps or similar to provide accurate directions.
