Learn About Firefighting in the Greater Boston Area at the Boston Fire Museum
For the past 30 years, the Boston Fire Museum has occupied an old fire house on Boston’s Congress Street. The museum’s mission is to preserve and showcase firefighting memorabilia from the Greater Boston area, as well as to educate its visitors on the importance of fire safety and support the fire service in general.
The Boston Museum is composed of several different fascinating and educational sections. There is an antique fire apparatus exhibit, a fire alarm displays and artifacts exhibit and even a number of photo displays. The firefighting equipment exhibit offers a look at equipment throughout the years, and the architecturally significant building acts as an exhibit itself. Each exhibition encompasses extensive and informative insights into the history of firefighting, as well as the current state of fire service.
Admission to the Boston Fire Museum is always free.
