Philly’s Museum for Firefighters

Located in Old City on 2nd Street near Race is the Fireman’s Hall Museum. This free museum is in a renovated 1902 firehouse, and tells the story of Philadelphia firefighting from William Penn until now. Adults can appreciate the history, which includes sections on the segregation of firehouses and Philadelphia’s development through the centuries, while kids (and adults too) can appreciate the vintage equipment. And there is a chance to put on some gear.
