I like stopping by the Fire Service Museum (Museu dos Bombeiros) on Estrada de Coelo do Amaral from time to time, mostly to see the early 20th century Denny fire engines on display. Opening hours are 10am to 6pm daily. The museum (free entry) is found within a historic colonial era building and includes two rooms. The first includes the British made Denny's which were put to use in Macau during the first half of the 20th century. They are in good condition and really neat to see up close. There are also historical Chinese water pump apparatuses which predate the Dennys. These are equally enjoyable to see and learn about. The second room is a showcase of firefighting equipment, gear, clothing and other items that will be of interest to firefighting enthusiasts. Give this room a few minutes to browse as well if you end up at the Fire Services Museum. Note: For those interested in making a visit the Fire Services Museum, it is around 5-6 minute walk northeast of the Ruins of St. Paul. Make sure to have you map of Macau handy so you know exactly where to go. There are some green signs pointing the way but a map will help you get there as quickly as possible. Allow 10-30 minutes for this museum, depending on your level of interest.…

The Fire Services Museum is a small specialist attraction on Estrada de Coelho do Amaral, 5 minutes walk east of Camoes Square and 5 minutes northeast of the Ruins of St. Paul. It is free to visit and is open from 10am to 6pm daily. Here you will two gallery rooms in a historic 1920's European style building. The first gallery showcases British made 'Dennis' firetrucks used in Macau during the early part of the 20th century. There are also Chinese made water pump apparatuses used during earlier periods. The second gallery includes displays of clothing, equipment and tools used by firefighters in the past. The Fire Services Museum is a neat and quick place to visit if you have time and interest. You can comfortable explore the collection here in 15-20 minutes.…

This is a really nice museum, which will only take an hour to go through. The museum is housed in a 1920 building, which looks like the original neighbourhood fire services station.

Again, fee to enter museum. A beautifully looked after place. Nice history of how firefighting, was done in the yesteryears. A few old fire engines. Interesting concept on how water pressure was built before automation. Kids would love to see it, specially little boys.
