Summer is a Great Time to Visit the Museum

Boat 2 Pre-Rehabilitation Work Continues The LAFD Historical Society Celebrates 10-4 Day
What a terrific summer it has been! Nice weather, no earthquakes in LA, and no better place to spend a Saturday than the LAFD Historical Society's museum in Hollywood. The museum is open every Saturday from 10AM until 4PM. It's the ideal place for kids of all ages!

The LAFD Historical Society is host to the museum. Every Saturday, a number of retired firemen will be on hand to take visitors on tours of the once fully operational fire station in the middle of Hollywood. Built in 1929 and opened in 1930, it was the largest fire station west of the Mississippi. Today, it is home to a remarkable collection of fire apparatus, as well as videos, presentations, and thousands of artifacts that represent firefighting in general, and the LAFD specifically.

So, make it a date! Come and see us tomorrow, or next Saturday. But come soon! We'll be nice that let you and your family visit for FREE! Warning: Visiting the LAFD Museum can be habit forming!

See you soon!


It is May of 2011 and my wife and I are planning our next trip to LA to see family next month. And part of that family includes the wonderful people at the Los Angeles Fire Department Museum in Hollywood. No doubt you will feel like they are family especially if are a current First responder or retired as such or just love and respect the Fire service like the men and women at this museum do. Spend time with Bob Lee,(Museum Chef extraordinaire)or Harry and all their colleagues and you will see why this Museum is so essential to the City of Angels!I cannot wait to see them again. Include this as part of your visit to Los Angeles for certain. We are from Chicago and never miss it when in LA! 'Nuff said!
