About the National Emergency Services Musuem  

Housed in one of the UK's first purpose built combined Police, Fire and Ambulance station in the heart of Sheffield, this fascinating Victorian building has served through both World Wars and seen an active service through the years of the Sheffield Gang Wars. The building is located just off the inner ring road in Sheffield, opposite to the current Law Courts and the location of the former workhouse. Within the grounds of the museum site once stood one of Sheffield first picture houses which sadly burnt down in the late 1990's.

With the building and its surroundings, this spooky station holds some amazing stories from the sad souls that spent time in the building’s police cells, to the service men and women who lived and worked in the building. The building's walls house over one hundred years of histories, character and events.

Some areas of the building have been converted into exhibition areas and visitor facilities but original features like our police cells, engine house and fireman's bedroom still stand proud. Building work began on this amazing site around 1886 with the completion and opening of the station in 1900. The building was originally home to the Sheffield Police, Fire Brigade and remained in operation as a Police Station until 1965.

During previous ghost hunts glasses have been violently smashed during divination experiments and thrown off tables, much to the alarm of those attending. Poltergeist activity is frequent and strange shadow figures are often sighted walking the dark creepy corridors along with a very dominant male spirit said go by the name of 'Cain'. This location is not for those of a nervous disposition.

Directions and Parking 

The NES museum is located in the Victorian Police, Fire and Ambulance Station on West Bar in the centre of Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

BY CAR - Unfortunately the museum does not have its own car park but parking is easily located around the museum with some on street parking and several car parks within walking distance. The closest is located directly across from the museum in Workhouse Lane next to Sheffield Law Courts.

When travelling by car please follow the brown road signs for 'Cathedral Quarter' but keep your eyes open as you could pass the roundabout where the museum is located. If using a Sat Nav please take extra care as the road layouts around the museum have apparently changed over the past few years and are still changing from time to time.

Additional Details

Hot and cold refreshments will be available on the night for FREE.

All guests to arrive at the location no earlier than 8:45pm.
