We hadn't eaten yet and wanted to use a table for lunch (we pick up when we finish-no mess from us) then go thru the museum. The staff was so rude didn't even get past the front door. Highly over rated, this is a business not a kind and wonderful good feeling place.
Hours of enjoyment – With three little boys, it's easy and affordable to just buy a annual membership. We spend hours there and they never get bored. There's two floors, fire trucks to climb, fire uniforms/boots/hats to wear and a (child-size) pole to slide down. This place is a great way to burn off some energy any day but we like it best on snowy days when we can be active and not bother anyone. Full participation here is key!
Uptight ticket lady – cons:
Had to pay admission for a infant.
Crabby admission lady that followed me through the museum. Passive aggressive approach with kids while they looked at gift shop. I think she should not work in a kid environment.
Not a lot of hands on activities. Upstairs activities dated and boring for kids.
Kept the kids entertained for 30 mins.
Found a great parking spot.
Over Rated!! – Over rated, over priced. Had to pay for my 15 month old child. No elevator for strollers. Staff not helpful.
Dedicated to preserving the history of firefighting in Denver, as well as, the city, itself. – In Short
Originally opened as Fire Station No. 1 in 1909, the museum is a perfectly preserved slice of American history, replete with ghosts of heroes of the past yet recalling the flickering comedic images of Keystone-cops-era silent films. The museum's artifacts date back to the 1860s and show off Denver's firefighting history and growth as a major city. The objects, documents, and photographs are donated by private individuals, Denver Fire Department, and the Volunteer Firefighter's Association.
