Good half day for all ages - quite a bit of up and down stairs. Rides on old fire engine round area some times.
this is a smashing museum especially if you have children, It's in the old Fire Station. I remember when it first opened in the eighties and I took my children, I've since taken my grandchildren and I still like to visit with or without children, I'd recommend a visit here to anyone, especially if you have children
After looking on tripadvisor initially for something to do in Sheffield we decided on the Fire and Police Museum. Just a short walk away from the City Centre this museum is quaint but has a lot to offer. The museum looks small from the outside but is like the tardis, offering several exhibtions and even the chance to climb into... More
really interesting afternoon, good layout. Lots of information about the exhibits. Very helpful friendly staff. Plus the bonus of yummy cake in the cafe
I'd been driving past this museum for a long time and each time i thought i would like to visit. We finally visited the museum. I thought the museum was very interesting and educational. I'm really pleased i finally took the time to visit. the staff were very helpful. I really enjoyed looking at the old police and fire vehicles.... More
We went here with a nearly 4 year old and a nearly 2 year old. Lots engines to wander round and clamber on. Engines from USA and cop car from NYPD. Good exhibition of models etc on upper floors - 2 plus ground floor. Small cafe available. Friendly staff. Very good model railway running on the top floor - tunnels... More
We discovered this museum by accident and found it to be fascinating. In fact, there is so much to see that we need to visit again the next time we are in Sheffield. The volunteers are most helpful and interesting. There is a small, friendly cafe that fits in well with the general atmosphere. In summary, a great experience.
Took our 4 year old grandson, the museum was good, and you could get close and even enter some of the fire engines, ambulance and a police land rover. Carter was impressed and tried firemans Welles, jacket etc policemans yellow jacket and riot headwear. Spent over three hours and good have spent more time there. Small cafe for refreshments.
The kids loved it as I did as a child but by God it's cold and the cafe is awful. Nostalgia made me give it four tho - it just doesn't change as the years roll by and I hope it'll still be the same when I have grandchildren!
