Museums Sheffield: Weston Park

Western Bank, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S10 2TP

Set within 1,000 acres of parkland, Weston Park, part of the Sheffield Museums group, beautifully explains the history of the city from pre-historic times to the present day. Collections cover a wide landscape of topics and range from an exhibition on the development of man’s harnessing of colour, from the first synthetic dye that created a splash in Victorian Britain to the vibrant art of Patrick Caulfield, to the Treasures exhibition which gathers together some of the more fascinating objects from around the world that travellers have brought home to Sheffield. These include an Indian crocodile’s skull kept as a souvenir by the man who had had a lucky escape from the creature, a knife used by the Sioux Indians and a set of 19th century Japanese dolls given to a local industrialist. There’s loads more here (including work by Van Dyck, Constable and Stubbs) - we love the Arctic World area where kids can build a mini igloo and meet a polar bear. Outside are formal gardens and woodland walks to explore.
