San Antonio Fire Museum
Located in the former Central Fire Station No. 1, the San Antonio Fire Museum's mission is to show how firefighting evolved from the 19th century to today. It is operated by the San Antonio Fire Museum Society, which is comprised of all volunteers. The museum features antique equipment and trucks, photographs, documents and photographs, a small theater that shows a short film about fire fighting, and even replica fire fighting gear that children can try on.
