Kelham Island Museum,

Alma Street


S3 8RY

Kelham Island and the surrounding area is one of Sheffield’s eleven designated quarters. A great deal of regeneration has taken place and many of the old factories and workshops are now cafes, artist studios, houses and apartments surrounded by award winning restaurants and many real ale pubs and micro-breweries.

There is free visitor parking at Kelham Island Museum but it is limited. There are spaces for about 40 cars and there is on street parking. There are however, several carparks within a few minutes’ walk of the museum.

We can’t wait to welcome you. Here you’ll find information on how to get here.
