  • If you are a firefighter or have family that are, or simply are a fire buff then this is a must see if you are visiting The Alamo. It's right across the street and is FREE and air conditioned. The hav...  read more »
  • I recommend anyone fire fighter or civilian to go here it is full of the stuff that makes you appreciate your own firefighters 
  • We happened upon this by accident and so glad we did! It is really a neat place to visit. All the different fire trucks and displays are so neat. My kids, 10 and 4, loved it. Lots of photo opportuniti...  read more »
  • Have quite a few displays on different rescue requirements for the fire department several antique trucks and other fire fighting requirement. They have a good display for kids also
  • Love it. I have never had the opportunity to see the old next to the new when it comes to firefighting. This small museum is downtown and well worth the short walk. The history of the San Antonio Fire Department is deep and the docents love what they do. Ask a lot of questions or just enjoy. It is well worth your while. They let us in for free. They said "You are free today." I purchased merchandise and gave a donation on my way out. It is a must visit on your trip to San Antonio. It is a stones throw (literally) from the Alamo.
  • Great experience. My kids loved it, wife loved it, & I loved it.
  • My husband brought our sons aged 11 and 8 to this museum while we were on holiday from Ireland. Both boys had such a good time there thanks to their very nice guide Frank. They talked about Frank and the museum the entire weekend .., thank you so much for making my boys feel very much at home and for taking the time to show and explain everything to them. They have told all their friends about Frank (who they both think is awesome) and we couldn't recommend this museum more highly for kids and adults too.. An afternoon well spent you won't be disappointed ..
  • Great little museum, lots of history about the San Antonio firefighters and their beginnings. Good information, great pictures. The sections on specialties (arson, hazard, etc...) Are tiny but informative. There's even a section on women firefighters. The volunteers that run it are retired firefighters. They were working on making the entire museum air conditioned when I stopped by.
