About The Hall of Flame Fire Museum
The Hall of Flame Museum of Firefighting 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, or 250 gallons per minute of sarsaparilla to fuel citywide block parties! The Hall's fire helmet collection presents 400 protective pieces 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.
