The London Fire Brigade Museum Reviews
The museum is now a "pop-up" on a new site, showing just a handful of exhibits, until a new permanent museum opens in 2020. The "pop-up" lacks any historic exhibits - there's just some text to read - ... more »
We attended the pop-up so there wasn't a great deal to see, but the workshop we attended was excellent. Hats-off to the story-teller who taught us so much about the Great Fire of London. more »
I visited for the annual summer open day and really enjoyed our afternoon here. There a room of firefighting engines and dressing up opportunities for the kids. No-one can climb on the vehicles so keep an eye on small children. Inside the main building there are a couple of floors, with many rooms, with the history of the London Fire Brigade since 1666 (The Great Fire of London). The shop has some well-priced souvenirs and while it's not a modern museum with iPads like many these days it's still enjoyable for all ages.
