What is there to do?

It's all about exploring the fascinating history of firefighting and celebrating those brave men and women who fight the flames at the Hall of Flame Museum of Firefighting  and the National Firefighting Hall of Heroes, in Arizona!

This Phoenix museum features almost an acre of fire history exhibits, with over 90 fully restored pieces of fire apparatus on display that date from 1725 to 1969! Kids, can you imagine how firefighting has changed over the years?

Most of the exhibits are American, but they also have pieces from England, France, Austria, Germany, and Japan so it's interesting to see how even the techniques and apparatus change throughout the world.

There are six exhibit galleries within the museum, with each of the exhibits featuring information panels so you can really learn about what you are seeing.

Yes kids, the museum exhibits actually feature real life fire engines too - and they really do change design over the decades - AND there is even a fire engine that you can board! Grab that camera, because pictures are welcome, and it's great hands-on fun for the kids.

That fun can continue in the exhibit that features even more hands-on fun for kids!

The Hall of Flame sponsors the National Firefighting Hall of Heroes, which honors firefighters who have died in the line of duty or who have been decorated for heroism, and is also dedicated to the history of wildland firefighting in the US.
