Austin Fire Museum

The Austin Fire Museum is located in Austin’s Central Fire Station No. 1, Austin’s busiest station, which includes Ladder 1, Engine 1, and Engine 50. The station was built in the 1930′s and is a piece of history in and of itself. We are open to the public twice a year during our San Jacinto Day Celebration in April and for Austin Museum Day in September. Otherwise, you may contact us (on our website) to inquire about a tour by appointment. Our museum features AFD relics dating as far back as the 1870′s, including a Hook and Ladder No. 1 lantern, uniform pieces from the turn of the century, memorabilia from Texas’ first African American firefighters, and MORE!
