Thank you considering the PA National Fire Museum for a field trip.
The Pennsylvania National Fire Museum is housed in an 1899 firehouse. Our guided tours take 75-90 minutes.
Children under 8 years of age probably may not learn much from the museum. There are no " hands on" activities for children. The Fire Museum is a collection of antique fire service artifacts and antique fire trucks. Visitors are not permitted to get on any of the fire trucks or other displays. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is responsible for their behavior.
For registered groups, our guided tours rotate through the various parts of the museum about every 20 minutes. It is primarily a look, read, listen and respond to the guides lecture and answer questions.
In order to schedule a guided tour, the museum requests at least two weeks notice so that we can have sufficient staff on hand. The museum is operated and staffed by volunteers. The group rate is $6.00 per person regardless of age and applies to all attendees. (students, teachers, chaperones, etc.)
Since we are housed in an 1899 firehouse, we do not have an area for groups to eat.
