Denver Firefighters Museum

If the heart of a great museum is its subject, then the Denver Firefighters Museum is truly one of the greatest in the world! The Museum offers outstanding exhibits on the history of firefighting in Denver, focusing on the Denver Fire Department. We also provide important fire safety information through exhibits and classes. There is always something new to explore in our historic Museum.

The mission of the Denver Firefighters Museum is to preserve the history of the Denver Fire Department and firefighting through the collection and preservation of artifacts,  documents, and photographs. The purpose of the Museum is to educate the public about fire safety and the history of firefighting in Denver from its inception to the present. This is accomplished through interpretive exhibits, educational programming, and scholarly research.

Education is the primary focus of programs at the Museum. Educational program content is guided by its relevance to the mission statement. Programs are designed to provide the participants with opportunities to understand how fire safety and prevention directly affect their daily lives.

It is the vision of the Denver Firefighters Museum to present exhibits that are tangible expressions of the history of the  Denver Fire Department. The goal in presenting exhibits is to entertain, educate, and guide the public in the pursuit of new interests. Exhibits also are designed to provide the public with a  better understanding of the origins and growth of present community interests, activities, and attitudes. These goals are accomplished by using objects, documents, and photographs to interpret the Denver Fire  Department’s past and present experiences with the community.
