The museum is somewhat personal to the people who own and run it - the Oklahoma State Firefighters Association (OSFA). It is the only Museum on fire fighting in the United States that is managed by firefighters. Founded in 1967, in addition to commemorating the service office members, the museum also provides a lively and educational experience. The main exhibits revolve around the preservation and display of antique fire fighting equipment, including tools and machines that date back to the 18th century. Some of the items exhibited here were managed by Benjamin Franklin himself during his fire fighting days. There's a small brick replica of an oil fire fighting station. You'll also see a magnificent 59 foot long mural. And finally there is a collection of over 7000 patches of firefighting teams from around the world.

Oklahoma Firefighters Museum Reviews & Ratings
This was a great place to visit! The price was reasonable and the visit was well worth it. The docent was very knowledgeable and seemed to enjoy talking about different things in the museum and answering questions. My 11 year old daughter loved it, my 9 and 7 year old daughters had more fun playing on the playground. While we were there we saw a couple of younger kids that were thrilled seeing all the older fire trucks inside! There is a memorial, small playground and a couple of old fire trucks outside that is free to see.
Great place. The entire history of the fire service in Oklahoma on display. Not to mention a great play ground with old firetrucks and an interactive playground. Just an awesome stop right off I35 right next door to the zoo !!
This hidden gem near the zoo is full of information, everyone was so kind and helpful as well as VERY knowledgeable! Admission is inexpensive and there is a playground out front for the kids. Great way to spend some time learning and playing.
A beautiful tribute to the men and women who serve their city and others all over this country.
My wife, daughter and I were in town with some friends and had a little time to spend after an event before leaving town. We chose to visit the Oklahoma Fire Fighters Museum and we were glad we did. We got a personal tour from the gentleman on duty. Our favorite part was seeing the “old station” mockup with the working alarms and how they worked “back-in-the-day.” The memorial outside was very somber and honored the men and women that have given so much to protect and save others.
