San Antonio Fire Museum reviews
Our docent, David Todd, was a retired fire fighter who loved his job as a fire fighter and as a docent. He took us around a described most of the exhibits with zeal. Wonderful time we had. more »
This took me back! Some great vehicles and interesting items to view. But it’s the staff who really make this place come a,ive. They gave us a great tour. more »
Of all the things I really appreciated about this great, small museum was the responsible and honest way it treated the history of black firefighters as being a “low point” in the city’s history. The museum doesn’t shy away from or sugar coat this racist history, but instead acknowledges it and celebrates local black achievement. You’d be hard pressed to find such honorable approaches like this in any museum.
Visiting from Celeste Volunteer Fire Dept. : I had a great time with the crew. Very nice and educated group of guys. I thoroughly enjoyed experiencing the history, the apparatus, and the commradery. The museum is educational and set up for kids as well as adult viewing pleasure. Thank you Gentlemen for your many years of fire service and experiences.
