The Hall of Flame is America’s largest firefighting museum. Six indoor air-conditioned galleries display over 35,000 square feet of exhibits that tell the story of firefighting in America and Great Britain. Almost seventy restored pieces of fire apparatus are on exhibit, dating from a hand drawn English fire engine built in 1725 to a forty foot long, twelve foot high snorkel fire engine dating from 1971.

Other exhibits display rare insurance fire mark, beautiful 19th century lithographs by Currier and Ives, operating fire alarm equipment, and exhibits of helmets, scale models, ladders, escape nets, and specialized firefighting tools. All of the exhibits are accessible to the handicapped and there is plenty of free parking adjacent to the museum.
The Hall is in the Phoenix Papago Park, across Van Buren Street from the Phoenix Zoo and near the Phoenix Botanical Gardens and the Phoenix Memorial Baseball Stadium. The Museum is about a ten-minute drive from Sky Harbor Airport.
