“featuring two floors of fire-fighting memorabilia”
Built in 1851, the Washington Avenue Firehouse is now the home of the New Orleans Fire Department Museum, a wonderfully educational facility that features two floors of fire-fighting memorabilia. Here the visitor finds artifacts, memorabilia, uniforms and photographs of a bygone era. Some of the favorite treasures include an 1896 Steam Fire Engine, built especially for the city of New Orleans; a 1927 Ahrens-Fox Fire Engine, a motorized fire engine that could pump 750 gallons of water per minute; fire helmets from all over the world; uniforms dating back to 1891; and much more. Located on the second floor, the Educational Center teaches fire safety education and escape techniques in a fun, interactive environment. Firefighter Michael Williams, an on-duty firefighter since 1994, teaches fire safety classes to more than 4,000 children each year.
