A Message from the Executive Director
Welcome to the Cincinnati Fire Museum website—I hope it will entice you to visit us. Cincinnati is the birthplace of professional firefighting, dating back to 1853, and the museum houses one of the best collections of firefighting artifacts and the most comprehensive history of firefighting in the United States.
Staying true to our mission, we honor our heroes, and save lives through educating our children about fire safety. We are about to start construction of a state-of-the-art Safe House which will engage and teach children, and adults alike, how to identify, and rectify, fire hazards in their home—and how to escape their home safely in the event of a fire. We hope you will help support our Safe House endeavor through donating on the website and/or visiting the museum.
While here, be sure to check out our gift shop, home to dozens of Cincinnati Fire Museum clothing, toys, books and more. Many of these items can be purchased at our online Museum Shop.
We hope you will visit our Museum that honors our heroes, and saves lives.
