The Museum serves the community in Trenton, especially the schools and children, as well as the surrounding communities and national and international visitors to New Jersey. School children from throughout the State of New Jersey regularly visit the facility and we attempt to make each visit an educational experience. It will collaborate with Trenton’s cultural and tourism sites through the City’s Division of Culture and share resources and information to enhance Trenton’s growing Heritage Tourism.
The City of Trenton contributed over $200,000 to re-establish the Museum in the historic firehouse building in conjunction with the new Fire Headquarters construction, thus creating opportunities for growth of the Fire Museum. This has allowed the Museum to add several antique hose carts and three pieces of fire apparatus to the collection. It was re-opened on Wednesday, October 6, 2004 during Fire Prevention Week to rave reviews.Fire Museum of Trenton
