Melbourne is a unique city with a variety of famous tourism attractions to the end of the world. Not only is the center of fashion, the center of culinary tourism or the provider of the largest art performances but also a city that captures a variety of history with dozens of museums that it built. One of the unique museums that is also on the outskirts of the city is the Fire Services Museum of Victoria. Located in 39 Gisborne St, East Melbourne, Victoria. The museum was originally formed in 1972 by a group of people to preserve Fire Extinguisher memorabilia in large red cars. It is one of the rare museums in the world and only exists in several other parts of Australia. This building is also included in the Victoria Heritage List and has a National Trust classification.
This museum captures more than 20,000 items related to fire events originating from within the country as well as news or photos from abroad. Including the Fire Country Authority, and the Metropolitan Fire Department, as well as a collection of some equipment that was burned from the victim’s house, data containing history of personnel, memorabilia and other fire-related items. Most of the personnel working at this museum are retirees from firefighters so they can present original stories from the various great fire events he has handled.
They are also volunteers who earn little wages but are willing to work in this place to preserve all memorials in their youth. If the touring has finished and the time to go home has arrived, visitors can visit one of the shops which is also located around the area of this building. Fire Services Museum of Victoria Shop offers a variety of unique objects that visitors can take home, including various mini fire engines, CDs about fires, firefighters’ caps, T-shirts and other items suitable for children. The closing of the exciting journey revealed the history of fires a few years ago.
