Essex Fire Museum Open Days

Essex Fire Museum has three open days in the school holiday, on the following dates: 

  • Sunday 31st July
  • Tuesday 9th August
  • Sunday 28th August

On these days there will be opportunities for families to get involved in history trails around the museum, craft activities and a chance to sit on the fire engines (and squirt water😊).

The museum is free entry (but visits are by appointment only…… we are on the site of an operational fire station). The museum is situated in Grays,  behind the fire station.

If families are interested, could they please email us at:  and tell us the number in their party and the time they would like to arrive (we are open from 10.00am to 4.00pm).   This is just because we have to keep the station informed of numbers throughout the day. 

Our address and contact details are:
