A great museum run by enthusiastic volunteers. Alan showed us around telling us interesting facts about the exhibits. There were many interesting displays including all about wartime Sheffield and the Blitz. It was a great morning out.

To say I live 20 minutes away, I can't believe I've never been before. A real gem, loads of exhibits and very informative. I found myself rushing at the end towards closing time as there are so many things in there. Well worth a visit.
