Fodor's Expert Review Fort Lauderdale Fire and Safety Museum

Downtown and Las Olas Historical

The museum is housed inside the historic building formerly known as Fire Station No. 3, which has been restored to its original Mediterranean beauty (circa 1927). The Sailboat Bend landmark was designed by architect Francis Abreu and retired from active duty in 2004; it now functions on the weekends as a historical, cultural, and educational facility with vintage equipment including a 1942 Chevrolet "Parade" fire engine. Legend has it the fire station is haunted by a young firefighter.
