Hi all,

Received an email they wont be opening until 100pm that day--

Putting on the calendar now, as I still havnet seen the inside of the museum, as they are only open twice a year, and I always forget--(And we cant miss seeing these men !)

Something from their web page

The Austin Fire Museum is located in Austin’s Central Fire Station No. 1 at 401 East 5th Street in the heart of downtown Austin, Texas. The firehouse is Austin’s busiest station, which includes Quint 1, Engine 1, Engine 13, Austin EMS Medic 6, and the AFD Shift Commander. The station was built in 1938 and is a piece of history in and of itself. The station and museum are next door to the O’Henry Museumand one block south of the famous Sixth Street District.

 

We are open to the public twice a year during our San Jacinto Day Celebration in April and for Austin Museum Day in September.  Our museum features AFD relics dating as far back as the 1870′s, including a Hook and Ladder No. 1 lantern, uniform pieces from the turn of the century, memorabilia from Texas’ first African American firefighters, and MORE!

Hope to see you there
