Hall of Flame Museum of Firefighting
God Bless Our Public Servants! They dedicate themselves to running into situations the rest of us run from. Many times their equipment is only what they can carry in their hands and on their backs. As men began to contrive apparatus to give them a better advantage over the devastation of fire, that equipment took on wheels and levers and hoses and alarms. The Hall of Flame museum is the world’s largest collection of firefighting history. Exhibits include vehicles and displays from 1725 to a 9/11 memorial and on through our own Granite Mountain Hotshots. But not just apparatus. There are fire marks and helmets and turnouts and communication systems. In the Hall of Heroes, there is a section dedicated to the men and women who died in the 9/11 disaster and one of the FDNY rescue trucks salvaged from the wreckage. There you will find memorial bricks to the Granite Mountain Hotshots. There is also a Wildland Fire section that tells the story of the brave souls whose eagle eyes scour the skies for the first sign of smoke that might indicate a disaster in the making. There is also a small display to our brave Hotshots located in this gallery. When we have finished at the Hall of Flame, we will head over to the Organ Stop Pizza Parlor for an evening of relaxing music and dinner (on your own). The organists will take your requests and play your favorites...don’t worry, they know them all...on the world’s largest Wurlitzer Theater organ.
Tour includes entry into the museum, transportation, and bottled water on the coach.
