This spacious museum is dedicated to the history of the fire and police services and is full of interesting exhibitions including historic vehicles and a variety of police and fire memorabilia. Visitors can also see the original 1900s police cells and learn about the prisoners who were held here. There is also plenty for younger visitors, with a play area and a number of interactive displays. After exploring the three floors of exhibits, enjoy a drink or light snack in the Coffee Shop which has a welcoming open log fire in the Winter and a gift shop selling a range of unique and unusual gifts.
The building was formerly a police and fire station, and was one of the UK's first purpose built stations. The museum opened in 1983 to house the vast collection of fire service related memorabilia and has grown to become the largest volunteer run museum of it's kind in the country. The museum is also ideal for educational visits, with a number of fascinating packages and resources for school and community groups.
