We bought tickets on groupon, and glad we did. Even our teenagers enjoyed it. The kids can dress up, slide down the pole, and play games upstairs. We enjoyed the history. 1 hour was a good amount to spend there. Gift shop is very affordable & the lady working was super nice & helpful!

I thought that my kids (ages 5 and 3) would breeze through this museum in a hour or so because it's not very large, but they ended up spending several hours in the museum. There is an old fire pole that the kids can slide down, an old fire truck they can climb into and play in, a dress up... More

This place is tiny -- interesting but tiny -- a visit will take under ten minutes - they do have some cool souvenirs and it is worth a quick drop in

Great place for the kids, and adults as well. Old fire trucks, one of which the kids can climb into, uniforms to put on, and a lot of inter action for them. For the adults, the station upstairs has the lockers the firemen used, lots to see and take in, I would allow 2 hours at least if you want... More

I took a group of seniors here and we had a great time. They loved the history of the Denver fire department and looking at all the equipment that was from the past. GREAT tour, and great staff. Very affordable and lots of fun!

Our 13 yr old aspires to be a firefighter someday, so when we saw this museum we HAD to go. There was quite a bit to see, we enjoyed our time there.

We spent about an hour in the museum, actually an old fire station with exhibits. I really did learn a lot about the history of fire firefighting, but a lot of the floor space was devoted to (little) kids hands on experiences. There were no kids when we visited but it might be enjoyable for them.

A great niche museum. Located just a couple of blocks from the 16th St Mall in the old No.1 station house. Crammed full of old fire engines and equipment. Lots of information about the history of firefighting in Denver. Good activities for children too. Well worth a visit.

This is an interesting place to visit, and is within short walking distance to the US Mint in case you have a little time on your hands before or after your scheduled tour at the Mint. There is lots of interesting equipment and displays to see. Children who like firemen would especially enjoy some of the child-oriented exhibits. The tour... More

We were jsut walking around Denver and came upon this museum. Reasonable entry fee. Great history of equipment and living for the very early fire department. Worth an hour or two.
