Fire engine ride experience...

Make your visit extra special by experiencing a ride in one of our fire engines. Climb aboard and get a feel for what it’s like for firefighters attending an incident. Grab your helmet and experience our imitation sirens as the engine leaves the museum’s cobbled yard and makes its way around the streets of Sheffield. Book your ride for just £2 when you buy your museum ticket online. (Please note, children must be accompanied by at least one adult during our fire engine ride experience).

Due to the age of the building access into and around some areas can be limited. NESM uses lights, sounds, smoke and smells to bring history to life...



Our historic building is old and can be unusually cold in some areas. Just imagine what it would have been like in the winter for prisoners who would have occupied our cells.
