Welcome!

Come and Visit

Located in historic Old City Philadelphia, the museum is housed in a renovated 1902 firehouse. Fireman’s Hall Museum is one of the nation’s premier fire museums focused on the preservation of Philly fire history and promoting fire safety. Philadelphia is the birthplace of the first volunteer fire companies. In 1736, Benjamin Franklin founded the first volunteer fire company called The Union Fire Company.

Health and Safety During the Pandemic

Fireman’s Hall Museum cares deeply about the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and visitors. We continue to follow state, county and local health rules related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and our top priority remains the well-being of our staff and visitors.

We look forward to opening the museum soon. However, any place where people are present carries an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19. If you decide to visit the museum upon our opening you voluntarily have assumed all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

It is up to you to follow state, county, and local recommendations to help reduce the spread of COVID-19:

If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, have had any symptoms of COVID-19, or have had close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days, you should stay home as directed by your medical provider.
