Jacksonville Fire Museum

Please note the Jacksonville Fire Museum is closed; its re-opening date will be announced on this site when available.

When you visit JFRD's Fire Museum, you are literally stepping into history. In the early 1900s, the structure was Fire Station 3, located on Catherine Street, close to Bay Street. Back then, much of downtown Jacksonville was rebuilding from The Great Fire of 1901.

More than a century later, the Fire Museum is now adjacent to Metropolitan Park and is home to an incredible variety of exhibits and artifacts that depict the evolution of our city's fire service from its beginnings in the 1850s to the introduction of motorized vehicles in the 1920s, to the creation of our Rescue Division in the 1960s and to the establishment of JFRD's Hazardous Materials team in the 1970s and beyond.
