Attraction Information

Get hands-on with 200 years of emergency services history at the The National Emergency Services Museum! Step inside a real Victorian combined fire, police and ambulance station and explore three floors of interactive displays for an educational day out, packed with exciting things to do for the whole family.

From jumping on a police motorbike, to taking a ride along the streets of Sheffield on a real fire engine (complete with nee-naws!), and facing the climbing wall in the mountain rescue room - this will be no ordinary museum visit! You’ll also get to explore Victorian police cells and see fascinating exhibits, such as one of the UK’s last remaining horse-drawn ambulances, Georgian fire pumps and even a full-sized lifeboat.

The National Emergency Services Museum also hosts lots of exciting events throughout the year, so make sure you check what’s on before you go.

  • The world’s largest joint 999 museum
  • Lots of hands-on fun for the whole family
