Families have a blast at Mansfield Fire Museum for BBC Radio Nottingham's Big Day Out

Families had a blast at Mansfield Fire Museum as they looked at historic memorabilia, played with fire hoses and even got to meet Dexter the fire dog.

Mansfield Fire Museum on Rosemary Street, opened its door on Sunday, April 28, as part of BBC Radio Nottingham's Big Day Out which saw country parks, museums and stately homes open their doors for free. The museum is owned and operated by Mansfield Fire Station Preservation Society Trust supported by Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service .
