About
The National Fire Brigade Museum of the Netherlands shows, as part of the foundation National Security Institute (NVI = Nationaal Veiligheidsinstituut), the history of the fire brigade, not only as a technical story but also its culture and social history over more than four hundred years, from 1550 until today.The National Fire Brigade Museum housed in two former naval buildings, the coopers shop (barrel factory) and the great store's room, dating from the 18th century. In our exhibition area of approx. 3,000 m² we show the historical extinguishing equipment, starting with simple leather buckets, to the modern fire trucks of the last century.

Fun museum for an hour or so. We visited during the 'vestingdagen'. Outside there was a bouncing castle and there were demonstrations. All very fun. The museum has several old fire engines and old fire fighting equipment on show. It's gives a good overview of the history of fire fighting. Our son got to dess up as a fire fighter will walking through the museum.
My husband was temporarly in a wheelchair, there was a chairlift and the staff helped him using that.

This is an unusual but very worthwhile fire engine museum for visiting. Lots of old fire engines and old fire fighting equipment. If you're into old machinery, this is worth seeing.

A must, also for your kids!

The Brandweermuseum has a lot of old cars inside. The museum is quite interactive and nice for kids too. The oldest exposition is from the time that buckets were used. 2 hours must be kept for a visit, nice for a rainy day!
