About FMOTThe Fire Museum of Texas opened in 1986 and is endorsed by the Firemen’s and Fire Marshals’ Association of Texas as, “The Official Fire Museum of Texas”. Operating as a 501 (c)(3) the Museum is managed by a Board of Directors through a partnership with the City of Beaumont. The Museum is recognized as one of Texas’s Best FREE places for individuals, groups and families to visit.

Dedicated to the preservation and education of the rich history of the fire fighting service, fire prevention education and fire safety, the Museum is housed in a working historic 1927 Central Fire Station.

The two story building recognized as a Texas Historic Landmark is an unusual style of Renaissance Revival architecture. The masonry eagle above the first floor bays and the colored tiles compliment the masonry cornice.
