Great small museum at excellent price
Jun 2021
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.

Welcoming and impressive!
Nov 2019
We were on a six day road trip through Texas and this was one of our favorite stops! The retired firefighters that founded and run this museum are just all around amazing people, and the museum is top-notch. They have some really amazing things to see that you won't see anywhere else. And we've been to a lot of fire museums across the country as our son has been passionate about firefighting since he was little! Every city we visit includes a visit to any fire museum or relic they may have. This one was my favorite of all! When we visited here, our son was two weeks away from graduating from the Fire Academy. They not only showed him around, but shared wisdom and stories he could take with him. These are dedicated professionals, that will never really retire. This shines through in them as people, and in their museum. They've put a lot of time, money, and hard work into a museum everyone can appreciate!

Great Place to View
Jan 2020
The San Antonio Fire Museum is close to the Alamo and a great place to visit, especially with children. View a huge collection f memorabilia, including fire department badges and firetrucks. There are several hands-on exhibits.

This is a great place to reflect on where the fire service has come from. Lots of great pics, tools, and apparatus to look over. It is definitely a must see.

Very Interesting Museum
Nov 2019
For anyone visiting San Antonio, fire museum should be on their list. First of all, the entrance fee is reasonable (10 dollars per person). Moreover, the people working there are very friendly, eager to help you, give you information about the exhibits and answer any question you might have. The visitor can see many vehicles from the past and even get on one of them! There are also many explanatory and photos for those who are interested in learning more about what they see in front of them. Furthermore, it is a very good place to visit with family and children since there is a place inside the museum where they can take photos wearing fireman suits. I was very pleased with the museum and I strongly suggest it!
