My fiancé and I were looking forward to visiting the fire museum as my fiancé is a firefighter! But unfortunately when we got there we were told due to monetary reason the museum was now closed and the building was being used for a yoga studio! We were very disappointed and felt like a historic building like that should not... More

My three year old was throughly entertained by this place. It's really small, but he didn't care. It's free, so if you're in the downtown ft with area it's pretty easy to stop in. Parking is off the street and you don't have to feed the meters on the weekend. Fun times

This small museum is free and open to the public. We just came upon it and went in. It had the history of Fort Worth outlined in old artifacts and especially interesting in old photos. The only problem was that about half the lights were not turned on and it was hard to read some displays.

If you are out walking Sundance Square, you have to swing by this place. It is the city's first fire station and now it is a very cool museum showing off Fort Worth's colorful past! I had no idea about the "Grand Palace" until I visited this place. I just dig Fort Worth!

This place was at one time an operating Fort Worth Fire Station. It is now a really nice museum about not only the worth Fire Department but the city as well. It's not a big place but it will keep your attention for an hour or so. The exterior will also impress you with it's old fashion real firehouse look.

As you approach the museum notice the Fire Station facade and imagine the station's rich history. The museum is free and has expanded hours which permit you to stroll through at your leisure. Lots to read and absorb.

This museum is free, which is always fantastic. It is small but holds a lot of the history of Fort Worth. My two 6 year olds enjoyed it and stayed interested the whole time. It is open until 8 PM. Everyone should make time to go.

The name is misleading, because this is really a history museum. If you could go to one place in fort worth to find out as much history of the area as possible, along with who and what made Fort Worth what it is, this is the place. To top it off, the place is free. Leave yourself time to read... More
