Overview

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.

We visited the Protest exhibition, which was fantastic. It was a great mix of informative, engaging and interactive. The Suffragete snakes and ladders was a genius idea.

We visited this museum on a Sunday and enjoyed the first section of the exhibit where it showed the various demonstrations that took place in Sheffield over the years. Very interesting but it became a mish mash of stuff as we go along. Not much...More

We really enjoyed our short visit to this small park museum. The kids enjoyed the natural history exhibits and we found a lot to learn about the history of Sheffield, with a strong political feel to the exhibits. The small "Treasures" gallery has some top...More
