Houston Fire Museum

It’s the oldest fire station in the city of Houston. The two-story fire station was built in 1898; it was opened in 1899 and operated until a new Fire Station No. 7 was built in 1969.  Preservation of old Fire Station No. 7 as a fire museum began in 1980. Today, the Houston Fire Museum has been completely renovated and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

I took my kids to get a little history lessons of firefighters throughout the decades and learn about how to prevent fires and keep our home fire safety protected. I will admit I think I was more interested than the kids with the history but they did enjoy playing and dressing up as firefighters!
