  • About the Museum:


  • Although the Museum is temporarily closed while a new location is sought, the Canadian Fire Fighters Museum first 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 has 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, and airport.

    The collection encompasses 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.

The kids loved it! We had a great time!
