I had no idea this was here till we came for an art show in the building. I loved this and would suggest it to anyone visiting Houston who has an interest in its history.

Recently took my little one (5) to the Fire Museum. He loved the old fire trucks and the nice fireman who was there. Not a big museum but worth a look. Lots of history on the fire department in Houston.

This museum took my family about 45 minutes to go through . There were nice displays, not a lot of info for the up stairs. The main display on the floor level gave a lot of fire history.

The six year old old loved the opportunity to dress up as firemen and climb over the preserved fire trucks. All the adults appreciated the nostalgic pictures and fact that the historic firehouse wasn't torn down.

For a city with such. A vibrant history as Houston and with the sheer amount of equipment in the area it's really ashame this was not down better. Ok to see but really, Houston. Brenham has a better one.

I am a firefighter so I enjoy visiting these museums. It had a really fascinating look into life in the early Houston fire department. It is a small museum, but it's not over priced either. I recommend spending an hour there.
