Children are advised to never play with fire, unless they are playing the popular playground game rock, paper, fire: the unfun game where fire beats everything. Learn about the brave men and women who beat fire every day with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get two admission tickets to the Hall of Flame Fire Museum and National Firefighting Hall of Heroes (up to a $12 value), a museum of firefighting machines, methods, and firepersons. This Groupon is valid for any two tickets: adult (a $6 value each), senior (ages 62 and up, a $5 value each), or children 6–17 (a $4 value each). Admission for children 3–6 is $1.50, so the Groupon's value is best used for older hominids—children under three get in for free.

The Hall of Flame Fire Museum and National Firefighting Hall of Heroes have almost one whole acre of fire history packed into their exhibits, including more than 90 fully restored pieces of firefighting equipment from across the ages and the world. The four galleries of machinery are grouped by era, for the most part, making the grounds a virtual tour through time. Take in the view of one of America's earliest motorized fire engines with the Type 400 and contrast it with an English Angus engine formerly used by the Nottinghamshire department, among many others. Or head to the helmet collection to see more than 400 helmets from Great Britain, Germany, France, and America. There are also many hands-on activities for children, such as interactive exhibits, an American LaFrance truck to gambol and cavort upon, Junior Firefighting workshops, and storytimes for the littlest firefighters.

The National Firefighting Hall of Heroes, located in the museum's sixth gallery area, is dedicated to the thousands of American firefighters who have died in the line of duty since 1981, the first year in which national records were kept. The walls are covered with the names of these heroic men and women, and museum-goers can also access a computer database of nearly 9,000 names dating back to 1800. A memorial for the first responders to the World Trade Center attacks is also housed in gallery six.


Frommer's highly recommends the Hall of Flame. Five TripAdvisors give it four owl eyes, and five Yelpers give it a 4.5-star average rating:

  • This world's largest firefighting museum houses a fascinating collection of vintage fire trucks. – Frommer's
  • …a good place to go if you're interested in firefighting memorabilia or to at least pay your respects to those who have died in the line of duty. – w w., Yelp

The Hall of Flame Fire Museum

The Hall of Flame Fire Museum showcases the history of firefighting with nearly an acre's worth of exhibits and restored pieces of firefighting equipment that date as far back as 1725. Visitors can check out a Rhode Island fire engine from 1844 that was capable of pumping 250 gallons of water per minute to put out fires or 250 gallons of sarsaparilla per minute to fuel citywide block parties. The Hall's 400 fire helmet collection presents 400 protective headpieces from around the world, and in the museum's sixth gallery, the National Firefighting Hall of Heroes honors firefighters who were decorated for heroism and those who have died in the line of duty.

Customer Reviews

Interesting to see all the vintage fire trucks, but really that's all there is to see. Expected a bit more. There was a section for kids to interact but it was minimal.

This is an amazing collection all under one roof. There is something for all ages. I highly recommend this museum.

Great for spending the day with the kids. They had fun, loved that they could go on one of the fire trucks. The guy at the front could have been more friendly other than that the gift shop was priced well and we had a good day.
