Visit the Hall of Flame

Welcome to the Hall of Flame Museum! This museum and the National Firefighter Hall of Heroes is located in Phoenix. The museum has almost an acre of fire history exhibits and is sponsored by the National Historical Fire Foundation. George F. Getz Jr. founded the museum

in 1961. Exhibits include 130 wheeled pieces and thousands of smaller artifacts. There are “hands on” exhibits for children. A special exhibit is now on display

in the Hall of Heroes with names, companies and photos of FDNY firefighters who lost their lives in the line of duty. A quarterhorse honoring firefighters and police officers who died at the World Trade Center was added in 2004. The horse was donated by a public arts project called The Trail of Painted Ponies. The walls of the gallery have names and pictures of New York City police officers and Port Authority officers who also lost their lives on 9/11.
