Museums, Sydney: 14 reviews and 17 photos
Tucked away in the back blocks of Penrith, a very western suburb of Sydney, is the Museum of Fire. If you like big red trucks then I can guarantee you that you'll get your fill here. There's some amazing old fire engines on display.
One of the main parts of the world class fire engine collection, it features hand drawn, horse drawn and motorised vehicles dating from the late 18th century up to the 1980s. You will be overcome by the variation, age and unique construction types. There are signs with excellent information about many of the items on display so you won't be wondering just what it is that you're looking at.
The museum is a non profit organization so you won't find your wallet will be that much lighter for having gone there.
The Museum of Fire is open 7 days per week. 9.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Sunday & Holidays. Closed Good Friday and a number of days over Christmas.
Group bookings welcome. Guided tours, School groups, social clubs and special interest groups catered for.
Fully wheelchair accessible.
You can get there by train.
