05/08/14 162 W, 1 I - + 10 - 4 Raleigh Fire Museum Open This Saturday, May 10

Looking for a cool diversion on a sunny spring Saturday? Visit the Raleigh Fire Museum in downtown Raleigh. We're open this Saturday, May 10, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. That's our monthly opening, on the second Saturday of the month.

You’ll see hundreds of photographs and artifacts about the two hundred-year history of firefighting in Raleigh. There are badges and nozzles and helmets and jumpsuits and even a hand-drawn hose reel. Yours Truly will be one of the staffers. Swing by and talk shop!

The museum is located in a modular classroom at the Keeter Training Center at 105 Keeter Center Drive. Admission is free. Parking and restrooms are available.

Please note that antique fire engines are located elsewhere. Both the museum's 1961 American LaFrance pumper and the city's collection of antique fire apparatus is housed at at Fire Station 28 at 3500 Forestville Road. Learn more at www.raleighfiremuseum.org, or click to enlarge:
