Our lobby redesign has been completed!

You may have seen the banners flying outside of Firemanís Hall Museum but we have some inside as well giving a new look to our lobby area while still allowing room for groups to congregate. A piece of stone from the debris of the Pentagon attack on 9/11/2001 and some soil from Shanksville expand our interpretation of those attacks. New lobby panels tell the story of the transition from old Engine 8 to Firemanís Hall Museum. Terry Ruggles has completed a video history project focusing on the last 40 years of the Philadelphia Fire Department with an interview with Fire Commissioner Lloyd Ayers. The video history will premiere in May at a special event at Firemanís Hall Museum.
