We went on the first Tuesday of the month when it is free. Great little museum. The workers were retired firefighters with lots of knowledge and they were so sweet. We spent about an hour here and our kids really enjoyed it.

This Fire Museum is ran by retired San Antonio firemen. Our guide, Jesse, was knowledgeable and gave a great tour.

Simply excellent. I have been to many Fire museums and I think think this one was the best.

Excellent collections, well maintained, fun volunteer workers.

Clean rest rooms.

Good collection of T’s for sale.

Highly recommend it.

The San Antonio Fire Museum should be on your list of things to see in San Antonio. The docents are enthusiastic with tons of knowledge on the history of the SAFD. Located just a couple of blocks from the Alamo, I consider this attraction one of the top sights to see in San Antonio. We are regular visitors to San Antonio.

What an amazing museum this group of retired San Antonio firefighters has put together. Special thanks to Juan who spent much of his career at this station. The cost to enter is an excellent price. Please support when in the area. If your active, send them a patch. They have and continue to build a wall of fire department patches from around the world.

The highlight of the visit was the retired fire fighters who shared their experience and knowledge - absolutely PRICELESS. We enjoyed the framed fire station embroidered patches from other cities, states, and countries. The restored trucks were worth seeing. The admission to this small museum was incredibly reasonable compared to everywhere else in San Antonio, and it was not crowded. Definitely worth a visit and one of the better experiences we had while visiting the city, for sure!

Our guide through the museum was a retired firefighter. He was walked us through the museum and talked about the history of the fire department as well as the area. There are antique fire trucks and various displays which were interesting.

Thanks to our docent, John, for taking us through the whole museum and answering our many questions. There are several fire trucks from different eras. We enjoyed learning about them and the San Antonio fire department's history.

Our docent, David Todd, was a retired fire fighter who loved his job as a fire fighter and as a docent. He took us around a described most of the exhibits with zeal. Wonderful time we had.
