The story of our communities' greatest heroes

Kansas Firefighter's Museum

Kansas’ largest collection of firefighting memorabilia. Trucks, hats, uniforms, photos, and one of the very first fire dispatch systems ever created. Preserved in perfect detail – you’ll feel as though you’ve time traveled!

Attention!

Due to recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) the museum will be closed to tours until further notice.

Stepping Back In Time

1930’s fire engines, a fully functioning, 6 ton, horse-drawn, steam-powered water dispersion system, uniforms from every era.

This is the real deal.

Tours, events, and souvenirs – your family will be fully engaged in the rich history of these brave Kansans. Nothing compares to experiencing the Kansas Firefighters Museum up close and in person.

Events For All Ages

Step into a pair of firefighter’s boots, pull a fire alarm without going to the principal’s office, and hear stories from actual firefighters. It’s an experience your family won’t want to miss!

Our Events

The Memorial Committee and volunteers have kept a close eye on the Sedgwick County/Wichita area Covid-19 data from local health and State Department officials. With a rise in the Sedgwick County area, and with Firefighters and Families traveling from surrounding communities and States we regret to inform you that the 2020 9/11 ceremonies and the 2020 Kansas Fallen Fighters Memorial will be cancelled.

We will still take a moment of silence during these times to remember the Fallen who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their community.

2021 will be the 20 year Anniversary of the Memorial and Museum. We’ll be sending updates on that throughout the year.


Sincerely,
David D. Wilson & Tod Newlin

Always Prepared, Forever Remembered

Kansas firefighters represent the most fearless, selfless, and dedicated members of our communities. They are ready for anything, willing to give everything – some have.

For that, we honor them.
