If this had been a commercially run museum rather than a volunteer enthusiast led place, we may have less generous.

It is not too far to walk, although Sheffield is a bit hilly; it's maybe 30 minutes walk from the train.

If the weather is nice I would walk since there is lots to see along the way.

The museum does not have a lift due to the age of the building but while they refurbish each area they are doing there best to make it as mobility friendly as possible. They have places seats on each floor so you can have a rest and the staff are always willing to help as much as they can.
