Museum News


Our Christmas Open Day will take place on Sunday 3rd December, between 11am and 5pm.  A firm favourite in the Museum year, our 2017 event will feature fairground rides, seasonal refreshments, face painting, childen's activities, the "Birdie" photobooth, the famous musical fire engine which creates its own snowstorm and, of course, a chance to meet Santa who will arrive on a fire engine.  The event is free, with a small charge to meet Santa and for rides.

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.”
