Museums and Heritage

Sheffield has a rich industrial heritage, having played a major part in the Industrial Revolution of the 1900s. Kelham Island Museum and Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet are key attractions in understanding what made Sheffield great, showcasing inventions, heavy industry and intricate craftsmanship, all of which have influenced the city today.

A visit to the Metalwork Collection (Millennium Gallery) is the perfect place to see a sparkling selection of over 13,000 tools of the trade, blades and beautiful artefacts associated with Sheffield-  the most extensive grouping of its kind in existence.  World class quality still thrives in Sheffield, but it now exists in many forms which is why Made in Sheffield continues to be a protected trademark.
