Honolulu Fire Museum Tours

This free museum is only open once a month. This Saturday is the day. Reserve a spot for the one–and-a-half-hour tour online and you’ll follow a real firefighter to learn how the department was formed in Honolulu. Take a look at the old firefighter uniforms and accessories, learn the history of the kid-friendly department and see a few fire trucks that responded to the Pearl Harbor attacks. The tour is open for all ages but be aware that younger kids may be tempted to get hands-on with the “please do not touch” exhibits.
