I think this is one of the better museums in Denver BUT, it is not for everybody. Most people will enjoy seeing the history of Denver and it's fire department, but I think it will really resonate with those who serve in the fire industry or have family that does. For long time firefighters (Denver or not), this place is... More

I have lived in Colorado my entire life and I have never heard of this museum before. My boyfriend and I wanted to go check it out! The price was affordable, the gift shop inside was affordable. It was amazing to see the trucks, the tools, the clothing and everything from way back up until now. It was really cool... More

It is a nice enough museum but very small. It was very crowded during our visit. Some thought it was a playground rather then a museum. Maybe during the week it might be different. Needless to say very loud. For what we paid and what we took from it I felt cheated, and it wasn't big enough to consider a... More

We had a wonderful few hours here. Staff were very welcoming. We were not sure how good it would be but it exceeded our expectations. Large display upstairs dedicated to 9/11 disaster which made us quite humble. Everything is really well laid out with lots of information. Great selection of old fire trucks through the years. Well worth a visit.

Housed in an old fire station and packed full of fire fighting vehicles and memorabilia. Although there were no children there at the time it is obvious that there is a lot of things children can do including dressing in uniform.

My husband & son visited the museum during our vacation in Denver. My son recently began Firefighter training so he was very interested and my husband found it very enjoyable as well. They enjoyed the exhibits and found it very informative. The staff was friendly & helpful as well.

My husband is a retired fire fighter so he knew many of the antiquated equipment and explained them to me. The video portion was very interesting. Even if your not into fire stuff, the building itself is cool. I think it was worth the time and money. It is just around the block from the US Mint, so kill two... More

We went here as my husband is a former firefighter and all of us were pleasantly surprised. It's a small collection, but well maintained and a nice reminder of how primitive things were in the past for these very brave men. We spent about 90 minutes here, lots to read and view. Some interactive type displays on the second floor... More

There is a lot of history in the museum, however it smells awful. I know older things smell but this was almost nauseating. Please put up some air refresh. Also for the cost it takes for a family to come here you could improve the children's activities. Like the whole upstairs could be given a fun update. We didn't come... More
