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!


The museum has free activities for kids almost every Saturday (check out poster below)
