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 little museum. Adults and children alike can enjoy this museum. This is one of many free things to do in Philadelphia. It's got a cool old fire truck and is staffed by retired Philadelphia Firefighters which makes it that much more authentic. It's in a beautiful area in the city and close to Elfreth's Alley. I've been visiting this fire station since I was a child, I even got locked in during a museum tour with two other kids when the firefighter's got called out. So this museum brings back plenty of memories for me. Well worth the visit!

Nice place to see the history of the Fire Service starting with Ben Franklin. The Philly FD Guys there were great and very informative. Great for families!

A lovely little museum that could easily be missed. The stained glass window was beautful. Chatting to one of the ex firefighters was an extra bonus.

I took my Junior Fire Patrol on a class trip here and was pleasantly surprised. A tiny museum but packed with memorabilia and an old fashioned fire truck. The firefighters on duty enjoyed answering the children's questions.
