Celebrate something new, somewhere old. Kelham Island Museum combines Steel City heritage with a contemporary urban setting to offer the perfect venue for your wedding day.

Located in the city’s most vibrant quarter and set on the banks of the passing River Don, Kelham Island Museum is a striking Victorian landmark which stands on a man-made island over 900 years old.


You’ll say ‘I do’ in the intimate Crucible Workshop or amongst the high ceilings and Victorian tiles of the spacious, flexible Upper Gallery, where celebrations can continue. You’ll also be able to greet your guests as newlyweds on the charming, fairy-lit cobbles of Little Mesters Street.

The building’s countless original features reflect its rich history and make for beautiful backdrops for your photographs. Celebrating 300 years of Sheffield making and innovation, the museum is home to exhibition galleries just waiting to be explored by your guests. 

Making the day even more memorable, guests can also enjoy the show-stopping roar and rumble of the mighty River Don Engine, the most powerful working steam engine in Europe.
