The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Time to pay a visit to the best museum in the world… your home!

While you’re stuck indoors delve into your collections, sift through photographs, find your first bear, or investigate the junk drawer.

It’s easy to do, just pick 5-10 objects and follow this simple guide created by Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust.

When you have set up your museum, create and deliver a tour like museums' interactors for others in your home, film your tour or take pictures of your objects to share with others online! Share with SIMT on Facebook or Twitter.
