NileGuide Expert tip:
This museum is convenient to two other major Phoenix attractions, the Phoenix Zoo and the Desert Botanical Gardens.
The Hall of Flame Fire Museum and the National Firefighting Hall of Heroes in Phoenix
houses nearly an acre of fire history exhibits. Explore over 90 fully restored pieces of fire equipment on display, with pieces dating from 1725 to 1969. Although most of the equipment on display is American, there are also pieces from England, France, Austria, Germany, and Japan. Check out the museum's fascinating collection of fire helmets, which have truly evolved over the years. This is a great spot to take the little ones, or anyone with an interest in firefighting history.
