Fire brigade museum
The fire brigade museum with the biggest collection in the Netherlands owes its origin to the fact that a few hand pumps were found in the loft in Borculo in 1956; where they had been hidden during the Second World War.
About 10 years later, a few members of the volunteer fire squad came up with the plan to set up a museum. This school building has a total floor area of no less than 3400 m2. The collection gives a clear picture of firefighting from its very beginning right up to the end of the 1970’s.
The same building also houses the Storm Disaster Museum, which has a collection of photos, articles and objects which all relate to the Great Storm of 1925.
