HISTORY OF OUR MUSEUM
The Hall of Flame Museum of Firefighting
The Hall of Flame Museum, located in Phoenix, Arizona, is home to the National Firefighting Hall of Heroes and has almost an acre of fire history exhibits, over 100 fully restored pieces of fire apparatus on display (dating from 1725 to 2004), a children’s area, and museum gift shop. While most of our collection focuses on the American firefighting experience, we also have fire apparatus and related artifacts from England, France, Austria, Germany, and Japan. The Hall of Flame Museum is sponsored by the National Historical Fire Foundation.

Who We Are
George F. Getz, Jr. founded the Hall of Flame Museum in 1961. He organized the National Historical Fire Foundation as a 501(c) non profit organization to promote the programs of a museum which he named the Hall of Flame.
