  • Came here with a U3A group and we had an excellent visit. The exhibits are many and varied with some buttons and knobs to press as well as coats and helmets to put on! The staff and volunteers were ve...  more »
  • I cam to this museum by chance, as the Kelham Island museum was closed and this was in the vicinity. It is quite a small museum, felt like I was in a small town, full of locals (which isn't a detrimen...  more »

  • Really interesting visit with so much to see and lots of information and history, finished off with a trip around the block in a real fire engine. Great value for money.
  • This museum is a gem absolutely brilliant too see all things 999 great to be able to try uniforms on and sit on various emergency vehicles see the cells and real old 1800's vehicles outstanding 2-3 hour walk round nice little cafe and coffee shop too the only thing that would be nice to see the vehicle s outside is under cover more to protect our history for longer and not to deteriorate further thanks for my visit enjoyed fully
  • Brilliant museum for families! Lots of child oriented displays for all ages. Could easily have left my toddler there for many hours playing! Good changing/toilet facilities one in the disabled toilet the other in a unisex toilet so good for fathers. Cafe had a limited range as it's an on going project but not bad prices and it seemed okay to bring your own... maybe by a coffee or two just to support them though =). Very interesting for adults too in the range of displays and social history. Gives a good insight into the workings of the emergency services over time. Not very buggy or wheelchair friendly though unfortunately but this something they are working on. Can't believe I've lived in Sheffield for 15+ years and never been here before! Will be coming again =).
  • Had a brilliant day here,a chance to dress up,an amazing time,staff was brilliant.
  • Really enjoyed this museum, informative and interactive. You can even climb on some of the vehicles. Great for kids, but even my party of adults really enjoyed ourselves!
