Overview
More
Weston Park is an award-winning, family-friendly museum where the visitors come first. If visiting with children, simply wind up and release, but there is plenty of treasure here for adults too. Discover the real story of Sheffield, from its geological roots to the people, politics and music that shaped the modern city. Alongside old favourites such as Snowy the Polar Bear and Spike the Woolly Rhino, Weston Park plays host to a series of temporary exhibitions.

over the years my visits to the museum have been infrequent it has changed so much and now focusses on relaying the history of our Fine city to the younger generations. A very interesting place none the less ideal to spend a couple of hours

Great place to take your kids for a free entertainment, the only downside is that there is not changes over the years. But as a free museum it is great and very friendly and family orientated.

Great artworks of interest for their local and international audiences, local history, and a fine gallery of the history of labour and protests. Crowded cafe.
