City Centre, Perth: 80 reviews and 122 photos


This museum is housed in the old Perth Fire Station. The Fire Safety Education Centre is also there. On display are historic firefighting equipment as well as there being videos and a range of special amusements and educational shows for kids. The building is a rusticated limestone which was built in 1900 and was the headquarters for the Perth City Fire Brigade after it moved out of the Perth Town Hall in 1901. The building was restored between 1983 and 1985 and became a museum to show the fire brigade history. There are many old pumps, ladders, hoses and uniforms on display.

The museum is open Friday 10am to 3pm and there is an admission fee.
