More about the National Emergency Services Museum

The National Emergency Services Museum, located in Sheffield, England, is housed in a historic former fire station and police station, and it has a history that stretches back to the Victorian era. While not traditionally associated with paranormal activity, the museum’s rich history and the artifacts it houses have led to some eerie stories and ghostly encounters:

  1. Former Police and Fire Station: The building that houses the museum was originally a combination of a police station and a fire station. It served as a hub for emergency services in Sheffield for many years. The history of these services and the dramatic events they responded to can create an atmosphere ripe for ghostly tales.

  2. Residual Energy: Some paranormal enthusiasts believe that locations with a history of intense emotions, such as those associated with emergency services, can leave behind residual energy. This energy might manifest as unexplained sounds, apparitions, or other phenomena.

  3. Apparitions and Shadows: Visitors and staff have reported seeing shadowy figures and unexplained movements within the museum. Some claim to have encountered apparitions that seem to be connected to the building’s past use.

  4. Eerie Artifacts: The museum houses a vast collection of historical artifacts, including old fire engines, police vehicles, and emergency equipment. Some people believe that objects with a long history can carry spiritual energy or attachment, potentially contributing to ghostly experiences.

  5. Oral History: Stories of the building’s past, told by former firefighters, police officers, and emergency responders, can add to the eerie ambiance. Tales of dramatic rescues, fires, and criminal events can create a sense of history coming alive.


While the National Emergency Services Museum is primarily a place for preserving and celebrating the history of emergency services, its intriguing past and atmospheric setting have led to stories of ghostly encounters. Whether you believe in the paranormal or simply appreciate the historical significance of such locations, a visit to this museum may leave you with a sense of the mysterious and a connection to the past.

What to Expect

What to Expect

Firstly a relaxed, fun time with like minded individuals! No matter if you come alone or as a group, you will leave having met some new people and maybe made some new friends on the way. 

On your ghost hunt with RIP-UK, you will have exclusive access to this location. Our event starts at 9pm, we ask that you arrive with time to spare ideally around 8:45pm. The event will start with a relaxed greeting, health and safety briefing and shortly after we will venture forth into the unknown.

Please note this is not a sleep over event, if you are travelling a considerable distance we recommend you book a hotel room, there are a number of choices in the area.

The RIP-UK promise… this is REAL ghost hunting! As a team we promise on our events we fake nothing, we actively ask our event venue hosts to ensure any and all devices in the venue that could distract or cause false positives are turned off. We set up nothing more than the refreshments! This means what happens, happens but we will not make something happen falsely. We do endeavour to create every opportunity for genuine activity through vigil guidance and experiements.

To get the most from the evening we encourage you to try your hand at as many things as you can, if you’re feeling particularly brave you could try a lone vigil, join others on a ouija board or perhaps even sensory deprivation experiments as we try to commune with the spirits and ghosts of the building.

Please dress weather appropriately, with extra layers of clothing if it’s cold, plus comfortable shoes and a torch if you need one.
