Owner description: Stop by this small (and free!) museum on your walking tour of Philadelphia. Staffed by actual firemen, Firemans Hall exhibits artifacts, such as leather buckets and fire marks, once and sometimes still used to fight city fires.

This is a great trip for the family , right next to all the historic sights in Philly.

The museum contains relics of fire fighting. Old uniforms, tools, newspaper articles and interactive exhibits.

The entrance is free, but I brought my wife a cool, Philadelphia fire dept. t-shirt, to help the cause.

I did not that this was the first fire station, (restored) in colonial North America. Started by , no surprise, Ben Franklin!

Has lots of old fire equipment and fire house articles. Also has a stirring 911 exhibit. Would recommend.

The coolest firefighting oriented museum. Small, free, unbelievable collection of cool fire fighting memorabilia, antiques and significant items. Even the water pump from George Washington's first home as president (yes, it was in Philly). DON'T MISS this gem. Can be through it in an hour and it is inspiring.

This is a wonderful place everyone needs to walk the few blocks and see the history of this great cities Fire Department. Take a few hours and take a tour it is free and you will enjoy it. Kids will love the displays and the fire trucks. They are raising money to keep the doors open it is worth it to support this local treasure.
