Fire Services Museum of Victoria, East Melbourne Opening Hours & Price
During your visit to the Fire Services Museum of Victoria, you will have the opportunity take a tour with a volunteer. Most volunteers are retired fire fighters who will be able to explain what their work entails as well as the history of fire fighting in Australia.
The award-winning museum is also home to a shop where you can purchase fire fighting souvenirs and memorabilia. There are fire fighting demonstrations for a couple of days throughout the year, but prior booking is mandatory. This certainly is the highlight of a tour of this unique museum.
Please note that the Fire Services Museum Victoria has two locations; the main Museum is located in East Melbourne and the Restoration Workshops are located in Newport. The Newport location is open to the public by appointment only.
