My wife found out about this place and thought it would be a neat experience as I am training to become a firefighter. Even if you have nothing to do with firefighting this would still be a great family experience. There is a lot of history in firefighting. This also pays tribute to fallen heroes and people that have been... More

Excellent Fire Fighter museum, with very nice truck exhibits. Very reasonable to get in and a nice way to spend a few hours. This museum, is not geared toward Arizona but geared toward fire fighting in general. They have trucks from all over the country, even a few from over seas.

Great little museum with tons of stuff to look at and an excellent area for kids. There's a lot to see in the museum and it has a small entrance fee.

We decided to see this museum for what it represents. The hard work and dedication of first responders. The presentation is done very well from early beginnings of how people joined together to fight fires with the tools of their time period, pristine fire equipment from years past, a preserved fire response call center from the 70's, fire department patches...

For a very low entrance fee, you can see a very large and historic collection of firefighting equipment. They give you an in-depth book so the self-guided tour is very informative. All in all it was a very enjoyable visit.

This fire museum contains fire apparatus from the very early days of fire fighting to more modern times. There are numerous displays of fire fighting memorabilia. We were fortunate to be shown much of the museum by Ron who is the coordinator of the volunteers. He is a retired firefighter from Long Island and really knows his equipment. We spent... More

It is amazing and an excellent reminder of all that the first responders do for Phoenix. I recommend going there for birthday parties and supporting them with an extra donation when you are there.

Everyone appreciates firefighters and this museum shows history, dedication of many, commemoration for so many. The two retired firefighters who were working were personable, enthusiastic and showed their continued dedication to this profession. All exhibits were well documented. Facility was neat and clean. Gift shop had many items to choose from, for the young to the old. Dont miss this... More
