The Norfolk Fire Museum grew out of the old Norfolk Fire Service Historical and Preservation Society and still has very close links with Norfolk Fire & Rescue Service. It is though, a charity and all work is carried out by volunteers. The basis of the collection at present is Local Authority Fire Brigades. This is now being extended to celebrate all fire fighting in Norfolk and we would appreciate receiving any artifacts or information relating to RAF, MOD or Works Fire Brigades that operated in Norfolk.
We became a fully registered charity on 7th February 2019. Our Charity Commission Registration No. 1181921
To celebrate the history of firefighting in the County of Norfolk and to promote fire safety and education to all sections of the community.
How To See Us
Although the Norfolk Fire Museum does not have a permanent display building at the moment we do currently have a pop up museum in Great Yarmouth with a number of our exhibits and some friendly volunteers to show you around. Finally we also have a Touring Museum that can attend your event or school, please contact us to find out more about this. Part of our touring museum can often be seen at our friends at Bressingham Steam and Gardens during events and school holidays, come say hello.
