Want to make history as appealing to kids as it is to adults? Serving it up inside a restored 1926 fire house is a very good start. The Orlando Fire Museum showcases the history of the City Beautiful's bravest along with a host of antique equipment that includes an array of impressive fire engines: LaFrance apparatus from the early 1900s, a 1919 ladder truck and another from 1926 just to name a few. Additional artifacts on display include helmets and other tools along with lithographs. Volunteer guides here are retired Orlando firefighters; they really know their stuff. This free attraction is open on Friday and Saturday; donations for its upkeep are greatly appreciated.
- Fri: 9am-3pm
- Sat: 9am-4pm
- Free; Donations Appreciated
- Best for Museums Because: Who doesn't love fire engines?! The OFM is free (donations appreciation), fun and features genuine firefighter docents.
- Best for Family-Friendly Museums Because: Kids will delight in the Orlando Fire Museum's bells and whistles, but also in true tales told by the firefighters themselves.
