Welsh Museum of Fire
Fireman Sam raising funds in Neath for the upkeep of the restoration on fire engines at The Welsh Museum of Fire which is run by the Welsh Area Fire Engine Restoration Society (WAFERS). They are situated in Neath in South Wales. The Museum is one of the largest of its type in the UK. WAFERS also attend events across Wales to raise funding which is used to maintain the Museum and to restore fire engines to their former glory. Volunteers are always welcome!
Museum of Fire
The Museum holds a vast collection of fire fighting memorabilia throughout history and particularly from the Second World War. We also have restored fire engines dating from the 1930s onwards. You can view restoration projects in progress.
The Museum is currently located in the Lonlas Village Workshops in Skewen which is close to Neath, Swansea and the M4 motorway. We are open to the public on Wednesdays and Saturdays by prior appointment only. Entrance is free of charge but donations are much appreciated. Group bookings and schools are very welcome.
Your tour will be guided by one of our retired firemen volunteers who will be able to tailor the visit to suit your requirements.
Unfortunately we do not have wheelchair access at present although we are hoping to move to larger, accessible premises"
