    Very well maintained old engines going back to the 1800s. Equipment displayed to really explain how these heroes do their job. Inexpensive, and should only take a hour or so. Kids would love this plac...  more »

    This museum has a wonderful staff; very polite and willing to educate visitors on anything they may want to ask. We took our 3 year old daughter so the attention span wasn't that great. They do have t...  more »

    This museum is amazing. The day we went it was manned by 2 wonderful & knowledgeable retired firemen. It's got different areas set up for adult and even kid learning. They have put so much time and work into it..it's just amazing what these people who donate their lives to protect others are now doing for the community. Visit this museum. Pay your respects and honor these silent heros. Thank you, for each of you are a gift.

    Great exhibit and history of SA fire. With our 2 firefighters touring the museum, they really liked the comprehensive amount of equipment shown and the history. They had 2 nicely refurbished fire trucks on display as well! Great for kids! We had a blast taking pictures with the cutouts in the back room! Very friendly staff!

    A nice little Museum. The Firefighters are very friendly and informative. I really enjoyed it.

    Right downtown, just behind the Alamo, and lots of cool history if you are interested in firefighting. Easy to miss, though, and on the very edge of downtown, so you're unlikely to stumble upon this place unless you're deliberately looking for it.

    This is a wonderful museum, especially if you're a firefighter! There is so much history in this place as well as old equipment, very educational. It's ran by volunteers, that are beyond helpful. We visited during the week, so we had a personal escort, Walter. He's full of knowledge and very humble. We really enjoyed ourselves. There are activities for children to keep them entertained. As of our visit it was free, but they will start charging a small fee Feb 1st. Make sure you leave $$ for a donation.

Where to stay in San Antonio

To be at the heart of San Antonio's buzzing atmosphere and attractions, stay along the city's River Walk. Lined with hotels of all levels, the area is known for excellent dining and nightlife, and is close to all of the city's main sights. While this area tends to be pricier than other neighborhoods, it is the best option for those traveling without a car who want to take full advantage of their vacation time in San Antonio. For a more rustic experience, venture outside of the city limits to stay at one of the old-world guest ranches that dot the beautiful countryside.
