Essex Fire Museum Open Days

We have a family open day coming up at the Essex Fire Museum on:

– Sunday 30th June 2024

There will be opportunities for families to get involved in history trails around the museum, spot hazards in our fire safety room, partake in craft activities and a sit on our 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).

If families are interested, please email us at: and tell us the number in your party and the time you would like to arrive (we are open from 10.30am to 4.00pm). This is just because we have to keep the main station informed of numbers throughout the day.

Suggested last admissions are 2.30pm. This is just so that people have enough time to experience everything on site.
