Dallas Firefighters Museum
This is a popular destination for school field trips or Saturday-afternoon family excursions. The museum, housed in the Fair Park Station, pays homage to our local heroes by documenting the bravery and history of the profession. The highlight of the museum is “Old Tige,” a horse-drawn water pump that pumped 600 gallons of water per minute. Old Tige served Dallas from 1884 to 1911. Here you’ll also find various artifacts and historical photos of Dallas firefighters battling flames.
The museum has a collection of rookie firefighter class photos, so if you know someone who has served as a Dallas firefighter, you’ll see his picture on the wall.
