Great place to pass the time with the little 1s, loads to see and plenty of vehicles to have fun in.
For a small donation you can have a ride in the fire engine too.
Kids loved it.

This place us great! Lots of old vehicles to explore, set in an old police station, loads of floors of fire and police memorabilia. There's a cafe too and parking over the road for £1 an hour. It's a must if your in Sheffield. We didn't go with kids and still loved it!

kids loved looking around the exhibits.There were some things to try on,and lots of vehicles you could actually climb inside.we visited the cafe,but found it to be rather poorly stocked and we were freezing cold.the staff were very friendly,and i believe you could take a trip in a real fire engine,but we decided not to as we didnt have enough time. would encourage others to visit with children.
