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

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
