  • For years and years I have driven past the brown tourist road sign on the M4 advertising the Museum of Fire and boy, what a fun/education little gem this place turned out to be! The museum prides itself on being the leading firefighter museum in Australia. Most of the staff are fire fighters themselves and it's evident how passionate they are for the brigade. There was so much for my toddler to do (he now wants to be a fireman when he grows up) and I personally learnt so much too. There are trucks dating back to the 1800's, horse and carriage wagons, signs, hoses & ladders galore. One of our favourite items was the "Fire Brigade Horses Honour Roll 1884-1927" with names like Prince number 1,2 and 3. Hidden away out the back of Penrith, the Museum of Fire is a true secret gem of Sydney that's not to be missed by young and old alike.
  • Very interesting and informative. Staff were very nice and took a photo of me next to one of the old fire trucks. Some great displays and stories to read.
  • Was very upset to get there and get in just to find out that there are teddy bears everywhere for some fair. When we mentioned to staff our disappointment they simply replied there was signage, which we looked for on the way out. It was along the street and almost invisible from the car. They didn't even invite us back at a later date. Very poor management and definately won't be driving the hour to go back again when they obviously don't care about their customers which was quite clear from the condescending way we were spoken to.
  • Took my Old Lady and Younger Brother there last week end. It was a great Family day out. Lots of parking too. They even have Pensioner discount entry. It was a really interesting Museum, just like the Museum in the City which I visited on my holidays a few weeks ago. Think I even noticed a Real Local Hero (RFS) there with his family. Keep up the good work guys...
  • What a wonderful day, my two grandsons could not stop running around your displays, but the person that enjoyed it was myself a 64 year old man, racing from here to there and taking foto's of everything. i will remember the museum and pass on to all my friends how great it is, and the prices are reasonable and the staff are EXCELLENT!
