Greater Manchester Fire Service Museum


This unusual museum offers visitors the opportunity to explore the fascinating history of fire fighting. Appropriately located next to Rochdale Fire Station, the museum opened in 1983 in a converted workshop building and is one of only a handful of its kind in the country. The many and varied exhibits, which include several full size fire appliances along with a large collection of equipment, photographs, uniforms, medals, insignia, models and other memorabilia, portray the history of fire fighting in general but particularly in Greater Manchester.
