It may surprise some to hear that the world’s largest emergency services museum is located right here in Sheffield, a stone's throw from the city centre. And it’s an attraction of local and national importance – with an independent identity and a charm all of its own.
During lockdown, the team at the National Emergency Services Museum have put together an ever-expanding range of themed free activities and crafts for you to try out at home. There's all kinds of activities for different ages – make your own 3D ambulance, lifeboat or police van, do a word search, colour in everyday heroes or the NESM mascot Rocko, and lots more.
If you can, please donate to the NESM's crowdfunder – "NESM is a self-funded, independent charity which receives no funding through Government, Council or the Emergency Services. Please help us to survive and thrive. Don’t let the museum that is dedicated to our everyday heroes vanish."
