Boasting a fantastic collection of old firetrucks - including 'Old Tige,' a 1884 horse-drawn steam pumper named after then-mayor WL Cabell, and a 1936 ladder truck - the Dallas Firefighters Museum is the perfect place to bring young firefighter-wannabes! Children can indulge their fascination with firefighters by climbing on a hook and ladder truck, as well as viewing over 100 years of firefighting history through a collection of extinguishers, helmets, suits, and uniforms. Sometimes you can even hear today's Dallas Fire Department's dispatchers. The museum is located in the 1907 Old No. 5 Hook and Ladder Company Station, and staffed by retired firefighters who give lessons in fire saftey. A gift shop on the premises sells souveneirs and t-shirts.
