The Raleigh Fire Museum is open on the second Saturday of each month, from 10am-2pm. The museum is located in a modular classroom at the fire department training center. Admission is free. Parking and restrooms are available.
Hundreds of artifacts and photographs are displayed and present the story of firefighting in N.C.'s capital city. Learn about Raleigh's volunteer firemen of the 19th Century and the development of the career fire department that protects the city today.
Fire apparatus is also often parked at the training center during museum hours, and can be viewed by visitors. Please note that the city's antique fire engines are stored at a separate location, at Fire Station 28 at 3500 Forestville Rd. in northeast Raleigh. Learn more at our web site.
