Sheffield Life and Times

Event, Exhibition (permanent) 1 November 2014 - 1 November 2018
    • Sheffield Life & Times tells the story of the city from the point of view of the people who have lived here. From the weird and wonderful neolithic stone carvings of the peak district, through to the troubled days of the miner's strike and Sheffield's regeneration, this gallery shows what makes this city special. You'll discover the natural resources which helped turn Sheffield into the 'Steel City', the slums of Victorian Sheffield, the city's radical political past, and the impact of post-war planning and immigration. Alongside real life displays such as Burton's butcher's shop and relics from the Sheffield Flood of 1864 you'll find paintings of Sheffield from the city's collection and a host of interactives.
