Not really worth the time. It is quite small. A better option for the kids would be the Children's Museum they too have a small area dedicated to fire fighting.

I took my Dad here who is a volunteer fire fighter and he really enjoyed it. The next time I had family in town I took my 2 year old niece. She loved climbing in the truck and trying on the uniforms. The Firefighters museum is great for the young and old. It takes about an hour to go through... More

We enjoyed walking through the old fire station that gas been converted into a musem. It has many varieties of equipment and trucks. There are many stories of major working structure fires. There is different types of dispatch systems that have been used through out the years.

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
