Fireboat Alexander Grantham Exhibition Gallery, with an area of 1 200 sq m, is located inside the Quarry Bay Park. The Gallery showcases a number of firefighting artefacts and offers a wealth of information in multimedia formats, enhancing the visitors’ understanding of marine rescue work in Hong Kong.
Commissioned in 1953, fireboat Alexander Grantham was the flagship of the Hong Kong Fire Services Department’s fireboat team and had responded to fire alarms and conducted rescue operations in Hong Kong’s waters and along the shoreline. Built in Hong Kong, the fireboat is also a testament to the achievements of Hong Kong shipbuilding in the 1950s. Given its profound historical significance, Hong Kong Museum of History acquired the fireboat after it was decommissioned in 2002 for the Museum’s collection and refitted it into the exhibition gallery. The Gallery was opened to the public in 2007.
