Firefighters’ Museum of Nova Scotia
Museum Closure | Friday, November 27, 2020
Due to the rising cases of COVID-19 in the province, the Firefighters' Museum of Nova Scotia will be closed to visitors starting tomorrow, Nov. 27th - to January 5th. We will re-evaluate at that time. The business office of the museum will remain open Monday - Friday 9:00am - 4:00pm. We are very sorry for any inconvenience.
Who We Are
Visit the Firefighters’ Museum in Yarmouth to discover the history of firefighting in this province.
Imagine the clang of the fire bell, the smell of smoke and the feel of hot steam as firefighters of the past raced to save burning homes in communities across Nova Scotia.
See the types of fire engines used from the 1800s to the 1930s. Marvel at antique hand-drawn and operated engines such as Canada’s oldest horse-drawn steam engine, an 1863 Amoskeag Steamer. Take the wheel of a 1933 Chev Bickle pumper and see collections of antique toy fire engines, shoulder crests, patches and badges from fire departments around the world.
