The Cincinnati Fire Museum: A Burning Passion for History!

The Cincinnati Fire Museum, established in 1974, displays over 200 years worth of firefighting memorabilia. Located on 315 W Court St, Cincinnati Ohio, The Cincinnati Fire Museum works in tandem with the Cincinnati fire department to create unique and informative exhibits such as the collection of unique items called “The Volunteer Era Collection” spanning 1808-1852, provides an overview of the development of firefighting in Cincinnati and the United States as a whole. The Cincinnati Fire Museum was also constructed inside of a restored 1906 Court Street Firehouse that was originally built in 1906.
