The Denver Firefighters Museum offers FREE entry to residents of Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson counties only on Wednesday, January 9. Museum galleries showcase firefighting paraphernalia, fire alarm technology over the years, firefighter training, historic photographs and much more. Many exhibits have hands-on components.
The most interactive section is the Kids Korner gallery that reinforces fire prevention messages through computer kiosks, puppet theater, reading center and video center.
Special activities will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. including the chance to meet active duty Denver Fire Department firefighters. And be sure to take a ride on E04, an historic Seagrave fire engine.
Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 1326 Tremont Place (off Colfax in downtown Denver), 303-892-1436.
