I really enjoy this attraction when my friends and family come into town. This is the best place for a moment of peace and respecting the fire service history. Also, research who made all the fire safety equipment really interesting

Built in 1927 as the Fire House. It was part of the rebuilding after the hurricane.Architect Abreu was hired by the city, he designed the fire house with an entry rotunda, wood beams, crown moldings and inlaid title eyebrow windows. Very knowledgeable tour guide

And of great interest to children to see all the workings of a fire station. Open Sat 9 am to noon and Sunday 9am to 4pm and close to Las Olas so a visit to both could be combined.

In April, 2016, we tried to see the museum and it was closed due to the fact that the tour guide had fallen and broken her leg. Call before you make the trip.
