The Hawley Collection, Kelham Island Museum, Alma Street, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England, S3 8RY.

Access for all:

The Hawley Collection is housed in a separate Gallery just off the River Don Engine Room at Kelham Island Museum.  The museum has automatic doors and level footpaths to aid visitors with mobility problems, as well as a tactile map for the visually impaired and a hearing loop at reception for the hearing impaired. Please see their website for more detailed access information: click here

Within the Hawley Gallery itself, the volunteer curators will offer any personal assistance that they can.  We can also provide:

For visually impaired visitors: a Braille and large print version of the Gallery Guide - a copy of this can be borrowed prior to your visit if wished. An audio-guide to the Gallery can also be downloaded from the Your Visit page.

For hearing impaired visitors: transcripts of the voiceovers for the films are available.

If you would like to use any of these, please ask in the Research Room on the right as you enter the Gallery, or ring the bell at the top right of the door at the end of the saw wall for attention. If you have any other concerns before your visit please get in touch by telephone or email – see above.
