Small firefighting museum providing you with Denver's history of firefighting from dispatch, to equipment, to history of large Denver fires. May things for the kids to see and touch. Three fire poles present but blocked off. Entrance fee if $6. Because of the size, don't expect more than several hours max. Small gift store with t-shirts from Denver fire stations.... More

As a fireman myself I had to go check this place out, The history in this museum was a wonderful treat. I can only imagine what it was like back in the day for these guys! So much history to see and compare to the fire service today. For me the best part of it was seeing the Old Fire... More

This is a small museum but I have a lot of love and respect for fireman and wanted to see how the fire station had grown over the years. There is a $6.00 per person fee to tour. Small children would love this place since they have small hats, boots, coats and pants they can change into. They have plenty... More

Small museum located in Denver's old fire station #1. Old fire engines, hand carts, an old fire alarm wall and more. If you are interested in fire fighting history or old modes if transport, it is worth a look when you visit Denver.

We were in town from California to see a concert at the Pepsi Center. We stumbled along the Denver firefighters museum. It is inside an original fire station. I sent some photos home to our firefighter son-in-law. I wish we had something line this back home. I specially liked the locker room. Great job Denver

My friend and I brought my 17 month old twin boys here. We were impressed with how much of the museum is hands on: fire truck, dispatch center board, firefighter dress up, fireman's pole, coloring stations, stop-drop-roll mat, etc. My boys were a little young for some of it but they had a great time. The gift shop had some... More

Took my two grand kids, 4 and 7 mos. plus three adults last Tuesday, 2/11. Small enough to corral and interest a very active four year old boy, nice toddler play area on the second floor, many interactive activities. I learned some new things, too. Can imagine it's pretty crowded on weekends, but for a mid-week activity, it's great, especially... More

This 2 story museum is downtown by the convention center. If you go during the week, there is adequate parking on the street of the museum. I imagine it would be more crowded during the weekend. I took my 3 children there and they loved it. The lower level is more museum-esque with lots of old firefighting items, but they... More

A kid friendly museum - they had a lot of activities that I'm sure kids would love. They have fire trucks and lots of interactive activities. A small museum.
