You can full visit information, including directions and public transport routes, here  

Are you travelling by coach or school transport? If so, travel for educational trips through Sheffield's Clean Air Zone is free. Exemptions must be applied for here.



The museum car park is right at the end of the Island. Turn off Alma Street onto the cobbled lane and drive past the museum (on your right). Keep going right to the end of the island. Subject to space, coaches and minibuses can also park here for the duration of your visit.

What to do on arrival

The museum opens at 10am and morning workshops begin at 10:15am. Please sign in your group with one of our Visitor Assistants. You will be shown upstairs where there are racks for bags and coats. There is a lift should anyone require lift access.



Due to limited space, we do not have a dedicated picnic/lunch area. We will offer your group a space to eat in, which may involve sitting on the floor.
