A tour of the National Emergency Services Museum in Sheffield

Wednesday, 28th June 2023

2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

The National Emergency Services Museum, Sheffield

£5 (normal admission is £8.50)


Following the very interesting talk to The Victorian Society in April by Matt Wakefield, Chief Executive and Trustee, we have arranged a daytime conducted tour of the National Emergency Services Museum in Sheffield.

During his talk Matt brought along a number of objects from the museum’s collection for the audience to see and handle. If you come along to this tour you will have the opportunity to see and handle many more items in the museum’s collection. The museum contains exhibitions about the Police, Fire and Ambulance services, as well as HM Coastguard and an exhibition about the Blitz.

The museum building was a combined police, fire and ambulance station in Victorian times and won the family-friendly museum of the year award in 2022.
There is also a cafe that you can visit either before or after the tour.

Charge £5 (normal admission is £8.50)
