Where are we going today?

Nee Yaw Nee Yaw - that must be the sound of a fire engine ready to get to work! The idea of being a brave firefighter can be exciting, so why not have a museum dedicated to the history of fire fighting, showing kids all about this amazing profession!

The Museum of Fire is a great place for the family to visit, where kids can get up close to the extensive collections of vintage and modern fire fighting equipment, uniforms, and more! 

Kids can even get right up close to some pretty impressive fire fighting vehicles that were used throughout history, from hand drawn, and horse drawn vehicles, right through to the modern engines that we know and love today.

The Museum of Fire is not only great in teaching kids all about the history of fire fighting (it had to start somewhere!), but it's also a great place for kids to learn all about fire itself. Is it a friend, or a foe? This kind of knowledge is invaluable, so the museum becomes more than just a trip through history!

The museum appealing to all ages, and even toddlers can comprehend the purpose of it, while older kids can love to learn. 

Fancy being a young firefighter? The Museum of Fire is THE place to go if kids have ever dreamed of being a firefighter! There is a special area filled with fun and learning, with fire safety activities, puzzles, computer games, and even a fire engine simulator - so they can drive their very own fire engine!

So why not take a trip through history, whilst having a great time with the family and inspiring those future fire fighters in the family. 

Nee Yaw Nee Yaw....it looks like your ride is here!

    Great place to learn of the history of the fire service of NSW. there is an annual Doll and Teddy bear show, an annual working truck show, and various other occasions throughout the year. A realy great day out with the kids! Lots of information on fire safety and great way for the kids to learn about being fire wise and fire safe!
    The adults will enjoy the well kept exhibitions of the vehicles and equipment of the days gone by.

    A great place for learning about the history of the Australian Fire Services. Good for toddlers and school trips. Big focus on safety, not just looking at the fire engines, which is good.
