This place is a great for the preservation of Tampa Fire Rescue's history. The building is an old converted firehouse from the horse and steam engine days. It has many tools, and apparatus from the early days. The museum is privately owned and is maintained...More

I am a firefighter and was sooooo looking forward to this place. The people who keep this place going are very friendly and knowledgable. The museum itself 👎🏻 there is many years of tools and equipment they could have but don't even come close.

I included a trip through the Tampa Firefighters Museum on one of those hot steamy Florida afternoons. The museum is modern and spacious. I learned that it was the original downtown fire station so I was able to imagine how the firefighters had lived. There...More
