Overview
More
The National Fire Brigade Museum of the Netherlands shows, as part of the foundation National Security Institute (NVI = Nationaal Veiligheidsinstituut), the history of the fire brigade, not only as a technical story but also its culture and social history over more than four hundred years, from 1550 until today.The National Fire Brigade Museum housed in two former naval buildings, the coopers shop (barrel factory) and the great store's room, dating from the 18th century. In our exhibition area of approx. 3,000 m² we show the historical extinguishing equipment, starting with simple leather buckets, to the modern fire trucks of the last century.

This is an unusual but very worthwhile fire engine museum for visiting. Lots of old fire engines and old fire fighting equipment. If you're into old machinery, this is worth seeing.

Love the museum. It is fun and lot's of volunteers to welcome and guide you through the museum. Fun for the kids because they can sit in one of the old cars.

Nice overview of the history of fire fighting in the Netherlands but I really appreciated their series of summer concerts!

The Brandweermuseum has a lot of old cars inside. The museum is quite interactive and nice for kids too. The oldest exposition is from the time that buckets were used. 2 hours must be kept for a visit, nice for a rainy day!
