My husband and I are both firefighters and EMTs so we like to visit Firefighters' Museums when we are visiting new cities. We were disappointed in this one in Denver. Saw some interesting displays but were sorely disappointed to leave without any t-shirt souvenirs, as they were all out of most styles in any size but XS or XXXL (really!).... More

This museum was beautiful inside, thoughtfully organized, full of neat things to look at and read. Upstairs is more of a free play area with costumes coloring and puzzle. Worth the visit to this museum with my 4 year old

A happy surprise! They have clothing, boots, hats, gloves, and walkie talkies for kids to use and wear. Totally an awesome time for them to be able to pretend and sit in a firetruck, turn the wheel, talk on the radio, etc.

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.
