What we offer on a school trip
A trip to our museum, in the heart of Sheffield, will bring history to life for your school, class, or community group. Within the walls of our historic home – a Victorian Police, Fire and Ambulance Station - we tell the stories of all our emergency services, past and present, across three floors and nine exhibition galleries, using vintage vehicles, original objects, dynamic displays, and interactive exhibitions. Our collection boasts more than 600,000 objects, from historic uniforms and badges to medical equipment. It includes about 150 historic vehicles, of which around 40 are on display at the museum at any one time. If you choose to visit us for one of our guided workshops, covering topics from the Great Fire of London and Victorian Crime and Punishment to the Modern Emergency Services, you will benefit from an engaging, interactive, and memorable session delivered by our learning and discovery team. A self-guided visit will allow your group to explore everything the museum has to offer.
