Last Updated on February 28, 2024 by Suzy

The National Emergency Services museum is located close to Sheffield city centre in South Yorkshire. It is located in what was one of Yorkshire’s first purpose-built combined police, fire and ambulance stations.

What is there to do at the National Emergency Services Museum?

The museum has over 40 vehicles on display across three floors of exhibits. Kids can fire up their imaginations and get hands-on with history. They are encouraged to climb aboard, try on uniforms and handle the equipment.

You can discover the grim side of crime in their original police cells and learn all about the vehicles, uniforms and equipment throughout the ages. The museum uses lights, sounds and smoke to bring history back to life. You can stand in the middle of a street fire and stand next to a Road Traffic accident.

On limited weekends you can make your visit extra special by experiencing a ride in one of their fire engines. The engine will leave the museum’s cobbled yard and go for a drive around the streets of Sheffield. This can be pre-booked and costs £2 when you buy your museum ticket online.
