Fire Museum of Maryland
At the Fire Museum of Maryland, visitors learn the importance of fire safety through a trip through the history of firefighting. With vintage equipment and trucks, and even the façade of a 1871 fire station, the museum is rife with relics that highlight how firefighting has changed through the years.
Size: The museum displays 40 antique fire engines, as well as gear that dates back to the early 1800s.
Eye Catcher: Museum staff carefully restored the cast-iron façade of Baltimore Engine Co. #8; behind it lies an exhibit called Life of a Fireman, with the trappings of a typical firehouse.
Tribute: The Charles T. Holloway exhibit celebrates Baltimore’s most famous firefighter, displaying his retirement watch as well as other artifacts from his life.
Hands-On Activities: In one corner of the museum, kids can try on firefighter gear and marvel at how much lighter it is than their bookbags.
Special Programs: Museum staff have carefully curated seven different tours, geared toward different age groups. In one, kids learn fire safety by working to rescue someone from a burning building; in another, adults see firsthand how the Great Baltimore Fire of 1904 was overcome.
