The Boston Fire Museum, owned and operated by the Boston Sparks Association, has occupied the old firehouse at 344 Congress St, Boston, since 1983. The goal of the Museum is to preserve and display fire fighting memorabilia from the Greater Boston area, educate and inform the general public on fire safety, restore and maintain the "Landmark" building we occupy, and to support the fire service in general.
The Museum Committee, which oversees the operation of the Museum, is an all-volunteer group of persons dedicated to informing friends and visitors about the history of fire fighting. Since the Boston Fire Department is one of the oldest in the nation, there is a rich tradition to salute.
The Boston Fire Museum is made-up of several parts. They are:
Antique fire apparatus
Fire alarm displays and artifacts
The architecturally significant building
The home of our parent group, the Boston Sparks Association, is on the second floor.
We are continually upgrading, adding and improving the exhibits in the Museum. Please take some time to look over our displays. Any member of the Museum Staff will be happy to inform you about the exhibits.
