Houston Fire Museum

Experience what it was like for a 1950's fireman to recieve a fire call! With a working pull-box on display just outside the restored watch office, guests can watch the "joker" punch out the pull-box number into the tinker-tape. Use the original box-card file to look up the pull-box number and find out which fire stations would be dispatched. Exhibits include a prized collection of eighteenth to twentieth-century fire service artifacts. The Locker Room exhibit is an immersing experience made up of a visual timeline using artifacts, documents and visual arts to interpret the fire service.

We hope you enjoy our work.
