Located in one of the city's oldest industrial districts, the museum stands on a man made island over 900 years old. Our interactive galleries tell the story of light trades and skilled workmanship to mass production. Learn what it was like to live and work during the Industrial Revolution and follow the progress of industry through the Victorian era and two world wars to discover how steelmaking forged the steel city of today and its impact on the modern world.
