About The Fire Museum of Maryland
The Fire Museum of Maryland (FMM) is located in Lutherville just north of Baltimore City. It has an exemplary collection of forty vehicles dating from 1807 to 1957, many of which are in original or early condition and most of the collection is kept in operating condition. There are approximately 14,000 documents in the archives and on line. The walk-in visitors and scheduled tours totalled about 15,000 pre-COVID; the Museum has been open again since June of 2020. The staff, paid and volunteer, consists of 28, 3 of whom are full-time. There is a dynamic program, re-vised, of course, during the challenges of the pandemic, with offerings for many age groups throughout the year. The Museum seeks to tell the stories of the American urban fire service, to instill a love of history and an appreciation of the many inventors and fire fighters who make our lives safer, and to teach fire safety. The Anna & Jasper Peabody Marsh Archives and Library contains approximately 14,000 images of architectural and engineering resources. The FMM is 23,000 sq. ft. in size and is ADA compliant. Metropolitan Baltimore proudly offers many technological, history, science and art museums plus culinary possibilities to match every taste.
The mission of the Fire Museum of Maryland is to educate the public about the history, technology, and innovation of the fire service through a unique collection of operating apparatus, memorabilia, and programs.
