San Diego Firehouse Museum

Founded in 1962, the Firehouse Museum occupies the former home of San Diego Fire Station No. 6, which now resides at First Avenue and B Street, the City Operations Building.

The museum’s brick-and-mortar building in Little Italy features all manner of fire-fighting gear imaginable and pays tribute to fire marshals, chiefs, deputy chiefs, alarm dispatchers and battalions who have answered the call of duty. Visitors will see firefighting memorabilia dating back 100 years.  Everything from fire buckets to early firefighting apparatus is on display.
