About The Canadian Fire Fighters Museum
The Canadian Firefighters Museum opened its doors in 1984. Since then the Museum has evolved into a national centre for documentation, preservation, education and celebration of Canadian firefighting heritage and safety awareness. The Museum houses a collection of artifacts that tell the story of the vital role that firefighters have played in the lives of communities across Canada. The Museum strives to represent all Canadian firefighters — professional or volunteer, industrial, military, wild land, or airport. The apparatus collection focuses on three eras: Hand Drawn and Hand Powered (1754-1902), Horse Drawn (1850-1938), and Motorized (1907 to present day).
You’ll see equipment of every kind, from all eras and all parts of Canada —antique fire helmets, an amazing array of fire hydrants, fire related signage, safety equipment, toys and of course our vintage fire trucks.
Visitors of all ages can try on firefighter gear in our firefighter dress up area!
