The Millennium Gallery has a decent collection of metalwork, as might be expected in Sheffield, with its rich history in this field. There are a number of other gallery rooms too, however a lot of the area seems to be taken up with shop space. I appreciate these places need to pay for themselves, (fantastically, this is a free gallery... More

Everytime I go in the Metalwork Gallery, there is less and less Sheffield pocket and table cutlery on display. I take friends from around here, and they always ask about it. It's a bit embarrassing. Where have the Stan Shaw knives gone, and the wonderful old exhibition knives?

Some fascinating silver and plate revealing Sheffield's skilled craftsmen through the ages. Ruskin gallery almost as interesting.

Millennium Gallery is joined to the Sheffield winter garden and was next door to our hotel (Mercure St. Paul's). Free to visit, not as big as I'd imagined. A good collection of local artefacts and the history of metalwork in Sheffield. Good to visit on a rainy day. Nice cafe downstairs.

The gallery is full of things never seen before but largely with a steel / knife emphasis (Feb2017) The layout is brilliant - the displays are terrific - the shop is full of super things to buy. Some of it the usual museum staff that helps keep the place going but some other items that are really beautiful and associated... More

I have good memories of other museums in Sheffield but this was the first time I had been here. Ideally suited for a drop in as we were doing en route to a restaurant it was great to see the Ruskin collection so varied and a tribute to all the strands of interest of that amazing Victorian gentleman. Amazing to... More

Also inside is a cafe and toilets which are both excellent and a souvenir shop - as well as this the gallery leads straight out into the Winter Gardens - another fantastic... More
