The Fire Museum

Bergen has one of the world´s finest fire historical collections dating back to 17th century. Museum under planning.

The numerous city fires and the fight against them have immensely influenced the urban development of Bergen. We have a unique collection of fire trucks, carriages, uniforms, equipment and photos that deserve its own exhibition.

A committed group of volunteers in Bergen Fire Corps History Team has an enormous memorial material and a burning interest in the field, and contributes with both work capacity and valuable insight into the fire history.

After a new, modern fire station was finished in 2007, Bymuseet has been working to give you access to the collections through the establishment of a fire history museum in the old main fire station from 1888. This will be a valuable addition to the experience of historic Bergen, and a great attraction to see!
