About Us

Since opening its doors in 1971, a visit to the nationally renowned Fire Museum of Maryland continues to be an exciting and valuable experience. Children and adults, students and teachers can learn about fire safety and fire prevention. If your interests run deeper, you’ll want to explore more than 40 antique fire engines dating from1806-1957, visit a working fire alarm office, take an audio guide tour on the Great Baltimore Fire of 1904 or stop by the Museum Strore. The children’s Discovery Room provides an opportunity to literally sit in the driver’s seat of a 1938 fire engine as well as put on turnout gear! The educational programs of the museum are dedicated to teaching fire fighting history and fire safety. They have been designed to enhance and to compliment classroom learning objectives for public, private and parochial schools. Students explore the history of fire fighting and discover how fire fighting and communications technology has advanced throughout the decades. Discussions, demonstrations, and hands-on activities introduce students to fire safety knowledge.
