San Antonio Fire Museum
Address: 801 E Houston St, San Antonio, TX 78205, USA

The San Antonio Fire Museum is, and probably always will be, a "work in progress."  Volunteers are constantly working to add new displays, including more antique trucks that we have acquired.  These trucks sometimes take months (or sometimes, years) to restore and prepare for exhibition.

What began as a dream of 5 firefighters assigned together at old #19's station in 1997, the Museum finally found a home in the former "Central Fire Headquarters," or Fire Station #1's, and we finally opened our doors on May 31, 2013.  It didn't take us long to run out of display space, and we have now expanded into the next-door "Annex", another WPA project that housed the San Antonio Fire Department Shops, located next door to the Museum. A kid's area, more trucks, an EMS display, and a small theater showing short videos of the history of the Fire Service, and even how Firefighters train today!
