For generations, firefighters have risked their lives to help their communities in the time of need. Some have paid the ultimate price by dying in the line of duty.
Central Ohio Fire Museum
"Learning from the past to save the future"
The Central Ohio Fire Museum & Learning Center pays tribute to our firefighters, past present and future, and the rich legacy they have left us. Through a collection of hand-drawn, horse-drawn and motorized fire apparatus, visitors can retrace the steps of firefighters and learn about their day-to-day lives in the engine house.
Set in an authentically restored 1908 Columbus Engine House (No.16) our building is on the National Register of Historic Places. Nearly $700,000 was raised from Firefighters, corporate and community sponsors to restore the front facade in 1990 and the journey to educate the public began.
The Museum opened in October 2002, and hosts nearly 4,000 visitors each year, the vast majority being children in grades K - 2nd. However, people of all ages enjoy the diversity and history offered in this interactive Museum setting.
The Museum's mission is to teach fire safety, education, prevention, and life saving procedures to all people in age -appropriate settings. Personalized individual tours are offered as well as classroom style settings for those who are looking for a more formal session.
Come visit "Fire Safety Way", where our qualified fire safety instructors will educate using hands-on, interactive, informational, and fun displays emphasizing the importance of Fire prevention.
