Explore the Fire Hall Museum and Education Centre in Cambridge and learn about the history of fire service in the city, and surrounding areas.
Located in an historic 1898 fire hall in the Galt area of Cambridge, the goal of the Fire Hall Museum and Education Centre is to inform, educate and entertain its visitors.
The education centre is used by students of all ages to learn about fire, water, electrical safety and more. The education centre is also used by area fire departments and Conestoga College to educate new recruits about the history and development of the fire service. Through a partnership with Conestoga College the old fire hall has also helped to train a new generation of construction project managers. It is also available for corporate and union training sessions as well as company and private functions: contact the museum for more information.

Such a fantastic fire hall museum! We had a walk around with a fire fighter who gave us tons of information and even got the chance to try on a full suit of fire fighting armour (less and oxygen tank). You have to hand it to fire fighters, they drag their heavy suit with them as they save lives. I could barely walk around in just the suit! #outandabout #Cambridge #Ontario #JohnGaltDay #firehall #firefighters
