First off I love the Houston Fire Museum! Housed in a old Houston fire station the museum is small. Although the size is small it is packed with history. It boasts a play area for children that has the cab of an actual fire truck...More

Recently took my little one (5) to the Fire Museum. He loved the old fire trucks and the nice fireman who was there. Not a big museum but worth a look. Lots of history on the fire department in Houston.

The six year old old loved the opportunity to dress up as firemen and climb over the preserved fire trucks. All the adults appreciated the nostalgic pictures and fact that the historic firehouse wasn't torn down.
