Museum News


If you are fire memorabilia collector or enthusiast, don't miss our first Memorabilia Sale which will be held at the Museum on Sunday 5th May, as part of our monthly Open Day event.  With helmets, badges, buttons, models, photographs and every kind of fire-related collectable available to be explored there will be something for everyone.  The Museum and Memorabila Sale will still be free to enter as usual; prospective stallholders should contact the Museum for details of how to exhibit. 

Mission Statement

”To explore, preserve and make accessible the history of fire, fire engineering and the fire and rescue services in the Greater Manchester region and, through our collections and resources, to further the education and promotion of fire safety in the community.”
