What is there to do?

Did you know that the Cincinnati Fire Museum is a museum that saves lives - are you excited to learn how? It involves history too!

Located in a 1907 National Register firehouse, the Cincinnati Fire Museum preserves and exhibits Greater Cincinnati's firefighting artifacts while honoring all the heroic firefighters, past and present

In fact, Cincinnati is THE birthplace of professional firefighting, so if you're going to learn about firefighting history, you couldn't be in a better place!

The exhibits display the significant contributions that Cincinnati has had to the firefighting profession, and it also celebrates the brave men and women who dedicate their lives to saving lives.

That's pretty special!

You can explore the Volunteer Era from the early 1800s showcasing unique items that help outline the evolution across the country. You can even see an authentic leather fire bucket that dates back to 1850 (yes kids, they used to carry water in buckets!)

Go back in time to learn about the steam engine era over the turn of the century, and of course the modern era of firefighting. There are some amazing artifacts in the collection of tools and equipment used, and even real fire trucks too!

There is exhibit signage throughout the Cincinnati Fire Museum, so you can enjoy a self-guided tour and not miss out on anything

We told you the museum saves lives too - well, you can learn what to do in the event of a fire, and how to help others, which is invaluable!
