The Denver Firefighter Museum offers guests a rare glimpse behind-the-scenes of the life and times of modern firefighting. The venue offers a chance for the young ones to try on some firefighter suits and pretend they’re on the job, while the adults peruse over a century’s worth of historical artifacts, all housed in the original Firehouse Number 1 built in 1909. A great look into a turn-of-the-century firehouse and all the progress made in firefighting technique and technology over the 20th century, the Denver Firefighter Museum offers something interesting for all of us.
The Denver Firefighter Museum is located at 1326 Tremont Place, not far from the Colorado Convention Center, in Denver, CO. Group tours are scheduled at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., and reservations are required, though self-guided walking tours are available all operating hours. The Museum is open Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
