Our temporary exhibition explores the history of London Fire Brigade (LFB) in Lambeth, beginning with the tragic Albert Embankment fire of 1918, reflecting on events during the Second World War and concluding with a spotlight on post war progress.
Visitors can see two modern fire engines behind glass, with all of their equipment displayed to show the amount and variety of equipment carried in a fire engine. This includes specialist cutting and lifting equipment for different types of emergencies.
There is also a short film which takes visitors through the history of LFB in just 5 minutes!
If you would like to visit us at our pop-up museum, please come along. We welcome visitors every week between Wednesday and Sunday, 10am-4pm – you don't need to book.
