The Fire Services Museum of Victoria requires new and energetic volunteers to help keep the museum alive! Any assistance, no matter how great or small, is beneficial to maintaining the viability of this great museum. Without the ongoing efforts of our volunteers this museum will surely close with over a century’s worth of fire fighting history lost. Help us survive by becoming a member and volunteering today!”

HELP the Fire Services Museum

The Fire Services Museum of Victoria relies upon entrance fees, donations, membership fees, and volunteers to run the museum and all it's activities.

100 percent of all membership and donation funds are used in the development, restoration and expansion of the Museum collection.

All Museum and Workshop workers are volunteers and we invite, and ENCOURAGE, any interested persons to come along and share in the varied activites of the Museum (if you can spare some time or share some skills, from sweeping and dusting through to mechanical know-how, or computing and office skills...we need you..!!).
