  • Museum of the Colorado Springs Fire Department from 1890s to present. Horse-drawn and motorized Pumpers please fire equipment. Ask to see the video (15 min or so) of the Waldo fire which destroyed...

  • Great hidden gem. Comfortable interior. Friendly staff. Free admission. Quaint gift shop. So much facinating equipment within reach for great photo ops.
  • This is a fun little museum showcasing early firefighting equipment and methods through modern today equipment and methods. The kids wanted to touch and climb on all the old trucks and equipment, of course they couldn't but that would have been even more fun. But they learned about horse drawn fire trucks, steam driven, and then early motor fire trucks, along with a couple of photo props upstairs along with a cute little fire truck video player with a video all about fire safety. The only complaint the kids had was that the museum wasn't big enough.
