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.

The children really love this place lots to see and do. You can spend a good couple of hours here and it's free. There is a very good cafe for drinks and snacks this place is a credit to the city of Sheffield.

This park has a bit of everything with the museum, a substantial garden, pond and even tennis courts.

My six year old particularly loved having a clipboard and running around the museum with her friend answering the questions. Cafe didn't have much atmosphere and was overpriced.

Decent, but not spectacular, museum surrounded by a nice park. It has an interesting section on Sheffield urban history and another, not so good one, on prehistory in the area. Various other exhibitions on wildlife etc. It's free entry so worth a bash.

It's free but there are several reminders about a donation. £5 is suggested.
