Monday 17 August 2020 - Sunday 26 March 2023

*** Please note, the Sheffield Stories and Picturing Sheffield galleries will be closed on Fri 17 & Sat 18 Sep for an event ***

Sheffield Stories celebrates the very best thing about our fantastic city – its people.

The first exhibition in the new gallery looks at life in the city during the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Exploring our home lives, neighbourhoods and the events and experiences we’ve lived through together, these new displays have been developed in partnership with residents in the South East of the city.

Discover fashion, photographs, toys and mementos from the period, hear stories and memories from Sheffield people, play vintage board games and relax in our retro-style front room.
