Where are we going today?

The Denver Firefighters Museum is located in historic Denver Fire Station No. 1. The building was constructed in 1909 for Engine Company No. 1 by Glen W. Huntington, noted Denver architect, as one of the largest fire house ever built in Denver. The building served as a working fire station until 1974. The building was designated a Local Landmark on February 11, 1974 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 14, 1979.

Follow the bootprints of a firefighter on a tour of the Museum. Learn about the equipment firefighters used, how firefighters used horses and dogs to help fight fires, see real fire trucks and utilize more than 20 hands-on activity stations designed to instill fire safe behaviors.

    It's not a big museum but they've put a lot into it. It's not a particularly interactive museum, either. If you're into the history of fire fighting you'll love this place.

    Took my 4 and 2 year old and they loved it! They get to learn very neat things about fire trucks and the equipment used by the firemen, as well as many great safety tips. The highlights for my kids were the pole they got to slide down, the fire truck they got to play in, dressing up like real firefighters, and playing computer games that taught about fire safety. Great way to spend a cold winter afternoon.

    It's downtown so street parking is always limited.
