Thorough fire prevention can save lives, which is why homes should be equipped with smoke detectors, working fire extinguishers, and a handful of dalmatians in fire hats. Fill brains with inflammable facts with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get four admission tickets to the Denver Firefighters Museum, located on Tremont Place downtown (up to a $24 value).

One of the top firehouse museums in the nation, the Denver Firehouse Museum sets visitors' imaginations aflame with outstanding historical and interactive exhibits, artifact collections, research library, and family programs. Explore exhibits detailing the history of the Denver Fire Department, or enter Communicating Fire, one of six main-level themes that delves deeper into the evolution of how fire was communicated through the telegraph, alarm boxes, dialing 9-1-1, and texting Fire pls help :). Visitors can stop, drop, and shimmy into an exploration of personal protective tools and equipment to scope out bunking gear, helmets, boots, and firefighting tools—or learn about other life-saving activities firefighters must be prepared to perform. Peewee fire chiefs get a hands-on experience with child-size firefighting gear, children’s pole and fire truck, and a touch cart full of actual firefighting equipment such as water-balloon catapults and fire-resistant berets.

The museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. Check the website for rotating special exhibits and galleries, and peruse the Plan Your Visit section for pertinent information on parking, tours, and why canisters of silly string make poor fire extinguishers.

Denver Firefighters Museum

In 1909, when Denver's Engine Co. No. 1 moved into its new two-story station, firefighters still relied on horse-drawn trucks to race to the scene of a fire. Those trucks now stand beside motorized vehicles in displays at the Denver Firefighters Museum, which has occupied the station since 1980. The nonprofit museum showcases more than 150 year's worth of firefighting history, featuring everything from tools such as helmets and bunking gear to the station's preserved officer's quarters and locker room.

Winding along the gallery floors, firefighter boot prints lead to educational stations with hands-on activities geared toward younger guests. Children can ride miniature fire trucks and poles, try on firefighting gear, and handle actual firefighting tools. To impart additional fire safety skills, the museum's experts teach programs both at the museum and inside local preschool and kindergarten classrooms. The museum also houses a unique gift shop with a melange of interesting, firemen-related items.

Really fun! I had a group of 6th grade girls and they had a blast! I was surprised by how much fun! It reminded them that they are still kids, not just "tweens"...
