The Los Angeles County Fire Museum is a museum of firefighting vehicles and equipment in Los Angeles County, California. The museum is located in a new facility that exhibits some of the 60 antique fire engines in its diverse collection. Its location for public exhibits is in the Bellflower Mayne Events Center. The museum is open four days a week, and during special events throughout the year. The museum's exhibits include fire engines from the 1860’s through just-retired apparatus.

Included in this collection are fire engines pulled to fires by men, horse drawn steam fire engines, Los Angeles County Fire Department equipment dating back to the 1920’s, the “Disneyland” fire engine, Model T fire engines, and 1950’s fire engines. The County of Los Angeles Fire Museum is the ONLY place to come and see the world famous Squad 51 and both Engine 51s from the hit 1970’s television series “EMERGENCY!”

The Museum has a gift shop on the premises and an online store where you can find fire related items as well as special edition EMERGENCY! gear.

Our goal is to tell the history of the American Fire Service in general terms, while emphasizing the County of Los Angeles Fire Department’s contributions to that history. We are an organization with 3400 dues paying firefighter members dedicated to preserving and showcasing our collection while providing entertainment and education to our visitors.

The Los Angeles County Fire Museum is located at 16400 Bellflower Blvd, Bellflower, California. Please check our website for up to date times that we are open to the public.
