Texas Fire Museum [TX]

"The Texas Fire Museum was founded in August 1999 to preserve the old Dallas Fire Department Maintenance Facility and to establish a fire apparatus museum that serves as an educational resource for the community. Presently, we have over 60 antique apparatus on display." In addition to the displays and exhibits offered by the museum, the museum also seeks to help individuals and organizations preserve vintage pieces of firefighting equipment.

The site offers a virtual tour of the museum, consisting of photographs of all current exhibits and artifacts currently on display in the museum, visitor information, and a calendar of museum events.
