Milwaukee Fire Museum: A look at Brew City blaze history

Each first Sunday of every month, we all have the opportunity to take a step back and see how the Milwaukee Fire Department has evolved over the years.  It's on this day, the Fire Museum, located in the 1600 block of Oklahoma Avenue on the city's south side, is open to the public. The site used to be the former firehouse of Engine Company 23 and Truck Company 14.  It houses a collection of memorabilia and vintage fire equipment, in some cases, dating back to the turn of the 20th century.

The doors to the museum are open between 1 and 4 on Sunday afternoon. Again, only the first Sunday of each month. There's no admission cost but donations are suggested. You can also rent out space for wedding functions or even school trips.  Click here to find out all the information about the MFD Museum.
