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.

This a place to take the kids to on a damp miserable day, so much to do and see lots of hands on exhibits especially for the kids. N ice little souvenir shop inside, cafe upstairs.
