Fire Museum of Texas

Fire Museum of Texas

The Fire Museum of Texas first opened in 1984 and has been endorsed by the State Firemen’s & Fire Marshals’ Association of Texas since 1986 as the official fire museum for the State of Texas.

Housed in the historic 1927 Central Fire Station for the Beaumont Fire Department, the Fire Museum of Texas exhibits an extensive collection related to the history of fire departments in the state of Texas. Apparatus, equipment, uniforms, and photographs trace the evolution of how we fight fires from horse-drawn vehicles to today’s modern engine. Objects on exhibit date back to the mid-1800s. Hands-on areas include a dress-up area with bunker gear, the cab to a modern engine, and a Fire Safety House.

The San Antonio Fire Museum

The San Antonio Fire Museum

The San Antonio Fire Museum is, as many visitors say, one of San Antonio’s hidden gems. What began as a dream of five firefighters assigned together at old #19’s station in 1997, has become one of the most notable Fire Museums in the country. Today, the Museum is located at San Antonio’s original Central Fire Headquarters at 801 E. Houston Street next door to the world-famous Alamo.

The San Antonio Fire Museum is owned and operated by the San Antonio Fire Museum Society, a 501(c)(3) public charity.  All of its management and operations staff are volunteers dedicating more than 1,200 hours each month to preserving San Antonio’s rich firefighting history.

At the San Antonio Fie Museum, visitors will see antique fire trucks and fire-fighting equipment, artifacts dating back to the mid-1800s, and beautifully archived documents and photos. A 1953 International fire truck, built by the Simms Fire Equipment Company, is available for kids to climb on and dress up in authentic replicas of firefighters’ turnout gear!
