Welcome to the Hottest Museum in Jacksonville

The Jacksonville Fire Museum serves as an educational link between past and present. Through the years, thousands of visitors have toured the museum, learning about the rich history of the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department.

At the Jacksonville Fire Museum, you will see thousands of items detailing the history of the fire service not only in Jacksonville, but the entire state of Florida. Exhibits include photos from the Great Fire of 1901, a fully-restored 1902 American LaFrance horse-drawn fire engine, and a working 1926 American LaFrance fire engine. 

The Jacksonville Fire Museum is free to the public. Please click on the “Planning Your Visit” link for more information about visiting the museum, or click here to e-mail the curator. You can also follow us on Twitter!

We are also proud to announce as of February 2014 that the Jacksonville Fire Museum will now be open on Saturdays from 9am-4pm!!
