Tour guide very well informed, old fire trucks most unique and even upstairs the uniforms shout bravery! Would recommend for all ages as the time is neither lengthy nor boring.

Worth a visit for the old fire apparatus. The company started in 1774 & this firehouse opened in 1855. Only open 1-4 PM on Saturday & Sunday.

My husband and I had never seen a museum devoted to a firehouse before and we decided to stop in while on a recent trip to Alexandria. Although it's small, the museum was great! The main floor houses historic firefighting equipment. The second floor contains exhibits devoted to the history of the Friendship Firehouse. Its association with Presidents of the United States was particularly fascinating and we enjoyed reading all the responses from Presidents thanking the Firehouse for their honorary membership. This is definitely worth a stop while in Alexandria!

We had our 20th high school reunion here and it was great. Food was wonderful, service was great. Nice venue!

Learning about the former firehouse rivalries in Old Town was fun, and the old fire fighting equipment is really cool. Good for kids and adults.
