  • 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!
  • 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.
  • There is a lot of history here,and there are fun things for the kids. The staff consists of local fire fighters and some from around the country. It was nice catching up with old friends.
