This museum is in one of the oldest firehouses in the city. It is relatively small - only a big bigger than a row house. There is equipment from the days of horse-drawn pumps and a great selection of clothing and other equipment. And at only $9 it is a great bargain.

Learned a couple interesting facts. Not a bad little tour if you’re interested in firefighting. Perhaps a bit more on modern fighting.

I took more pictures but wanted to share some. The last picture is a PIECE OF THE TWIN TOWERS. Denver firefighters lost a few of their men due to 9/11.

I've been to this museum before for a child's birthday party (it was great for that!) and brought my visiting brother's family back when we were exploring the town. It was interesting and fun and it doesn't take too too long. There is a good gift shop and firetruck on which kids can dress up and play.

It was a nice surprise to find a neat compilation of Denverbfirefighter antiques in such historical building. It takes you through time from early to modern equipement use by these real heroes. And is so much fun with the interactive section that time flew when we were there.

Yesterday the museum was free. A great museum nestled near the mint. Communication, gear, equipment, vehicles, local and nationally history...and they took us and a dozen more on a 1957 searay firetruck tour through the city. Open top bed, sirens, beautiful scenery, smiles by all.
