Clifton House was built for Joshua and Susannah Walker in 1783

It was designed by the Yorkshire architect John Carr, with additional work added at a later date by Rotherham architect John Platt. It is listed Grade II* due to the many original features still intact.

The Walker family lived here until 1861, when Henry Walker died. After his death the house was bought by William Owen who died 1881. In 1883 the house and grounds were put up for auction for redevelopment but failed to meet the reserve. In 1891 the house was sold to Rotherham Corporation for £23,000 for use as a Municipal Park. The park was opened by the Prince of Wales (Edward VIII) in 1891 with grand celebrations, with the Museum opening in 1893. Many of the early collections were made up of items donated and lent by local people.

The ghostly figure of a little girl in Victorian clothing has been spotted frequently around the shop area.

Another Victorian child (a boy) has also been seen more than once around Christmas time and he appears to be enjoying watching the Christmas carol singers. He even appeared to step aside for people walking past.

A couple who lived opposite the museum have seen a Victorian child frequently looking through the windows, even when the museum was closed for refurbishments. Both children were of poor appearance which indicates they were probably not part of the Walker family.
