About the Property
The Fire Museum of Memphis documents the local history of fire fighting and promotes fire safety. Children of all ages can experience playing on and with authentic fire equipment, experience riding on an aerial platform, slide down a brass fireman's pole and more. Major attractions include the FedEx Fire Room where you can see what it feels like to be in a burning house while learning safety practices needed to escape. There is also the 1897 Hale Water Tower, 1910 horse-drawn steam engine, historic fires exhibit, Black firefighters exhibit, EMS exhibit, the Ladder Company game, Fire Safety House and the Escape Maze, and always a favorite, Ol' Billy, an animatronics talking fire horse. From the moment guests walk in the door and are greeted by a Memphis Firefighter or one of the Fire Museum of Memphis' Dalmatians wandering around the engine house, to the impression left on all who view the award winning Memorial Wall, dedicated to Memphis Firefighters who died in the line of duty, the museum shares the importance of fire safety. Education is the most important part of fire prevention, and the museum utilizes educators that know how to entertain, hosting fire safety field trips for kids and adults as well, in groups of 10 or more, advanced reservations required. A complete list of the exhibits and attractions is available online.
