  • You could go many times and not actually see everything. Best part was the tour and information learned about fire fighting from early days (1820's?) to current. Amazing collection and proud...

  • If you know a firefighter or just want to learn how they got started, here is the place to be. It shows where they began and where we are today. Unreal how they began their journey!

  • This is a very interesting place to visit especially if u were or are a firefighter. The display of equipment and history this fire station has is mind blowing, was only planning on being there a half hour and didn't walk out til almost 2 hrs later. The gentlemen that gave the tour was great knew alot bout all the stuff in there n was very nice n friendly. Very recommended to visit. These are just some of the pix i took, there is alot more, just a taste of what you will see if you visit the fire station.
  • Guides were extremely knowledgeable and personable. The collection is overwhelming and well organized and displayed. A tremendous treasure for Erie. So glad we went.
  • We came from out of state and we planned to visit this museum - tucked in a residential neighborhood. We parked off street just watch closely the parking signs. The tour guide was Great explaining all the history and artifacts pertaining to firefighting. Huge collection of antiques and vintage artifacts, memorabilia and select trucks from horse drawn to early 1900’s. Two floors and the back section. Guided tours. Took about an hour and a half to go through. Learned so much about historical firefighting. Worth the money we paid. The couple who manage this place were friendly and nice. Some souvenir shirt available at affordable price. Bring your kids - they may get inspired like we were. We left with a greater appreciation of how firefighters sacrifice for us to be safe. Thank you - we love it. Worth the trip.
  • This is an awesome collection of firefighter antiques and memorabilia. The history of these heroic public servants and their equipment is absolutely amazing and must be shared with our younger generations! Many thanks to the retired firefighters who preserve this important part of American history for all of us. And as always, thank you to all the firefighters and emergency responders of past and present for their true grit in service of our communities.
  • The Firefighters Historical Museum is one of Erie's most unknown attractions. The firefighting history and exhibits are unbelievable. The hours are odd (because it's run solely by volunteers I think), but it's more than worth it to stop by and see if they're open.
