National Emergency Services Museum

Fire your imagination in the world’s largest combined Emergency Services Museum! The museum is located in one of Yorkshire's first purpose-built combined Police, Fire and Ambulance Stations, dating back to 1898.

With over 40 vehicles on display across three floors of exhibits, all housed within this stunning historic building, you'll see everything from horse-drawn fire engines and ambulances to police cars  and even an RNLI boat.

The museum recently won the national Kids in Museums Family Friendly Museum Award.
