Our Heroes | A Celebration of Firefighting in Detroit
We have partnered with the Detroit Historical Society to create a very special exhibit in our first and fourth floor lobby areas. All the artifacts on display are from the collection of the Detroit Historical Society and were donated to the museum. While some came from individual donors, the majority of the items were donated directly from the City Of Detroit Fire Department(DFD) to DHS.
Where can you find all of these amazing pieces of history?
Located on the first Floor (outside Apparatus Room):
**This is exhibit is open to all, and is free of charge. Please stop in and learn a little bit about Detroit Fire history!
