  • It a bit of a job finding it when on foot, but the excellent you tube video helped a lot. Use a link on the museums website. Very helpful staff and volunteers. A must for any visit to Sheffield. 
  • I loved this museum. There is so much to see and all of it relevant to the history of steel making in Sheffield. Would really recommend it for any age. 
  • This is a fasinating place to visit but i think the majority of visitors will be locals because it is all about life in Sheffield in the olden days.There are quite a number of things to see and do The...  more »

  • Just the right size for a lovely family outing, child and wheelchair friendly, fascinating learning experience for all of us. Nice lunch as well!
  • Went on 1940's day and had a great time. Live music and demonstrations were an extra, but the museum is good especially on weekdays and the beam engine is amazing. Parking is a bit of an issue so best to plan ahead.
  • Beer festival here was great. The Don Valley engine was an amazing sight to see!
  • Really good day out. Very informative and lots in a relatively small area. River Don engine in stream is impressive.
  • We visited yesterday with two visually impaired friends and it was a really good experience. I contacted the museum in advance and when we arrived Andy on the desk was all prepared for our visit with special textured floorplans, Braille instructions and talking pens. We are very familiar with the layout and enjoyed helping our friends experience the Full KIM Monty, which for them was getting hands-on "feelies' to the exhibits, talking to Mr Stanley Shaw in his Little Mesters shop and listening to the River Don Engine. Try explaining the workings of that huge machine to a visually impaired Spanish lady! Just as well it makes a lot of noise and shakes the whole building! Thanks, SIMT! We were proud of you.
