Come along for a mega machines summer every Wednesday-Sunday during the summer holidays.
During the school holidays visitors will get the chance to explore some true Mega Machines and learn how they are used by the emergency services. You'll get the opportunity to see exhibits not normally on public display as well as get more up close and personal than ever before with some of the normal exhibits.
There'll be a treasure trail to challenge younger visitors and the ever-popular weekend fire engine ride experience will be running. Plus, of course, plenty of time to explore the three floors of hands-on history and dynamic displays.
