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!)
