San Diego Firehouse Museum
Thing To Do #67
Firefighting’s rich tradition and heritage live on in the San Diego Firehouse Museum. Founded in 1962, the Firehouse Museum occupies the former home of San Diego Fire Station No. 6, which now resides in Otay Mesa. The museum’s brick-and-mortar building features firefighting equipment and apparatus dating back to the late 1800s. Other displays at the museum include La Jolla’s first fire engine, a horse drawn steamer, a piece of steel from the World Trade Center, and other memorabilia from fire stations across the globe. The Firehouse Museum is located in the Little Italy section of downtown San Diego. The museum is open Thursday through Sunday; adult admission only $3. Come and explore firefighting memorabilia dating back over 100 years! (619) 232-3473. sandiegofirehousemuseum.com.
