African-American Firefighter Museum

The Los Angeles Fire Department proudly celebrates more than a century of African-American Firefighters in Los Angeles. We extend an invitation for you and your family to learn more about the courage and dedication of these proud men and women by visiting the African-American Firefighter Museum. Built in a Fire Station that once housed LAFD's Engine Company 30 and Truck Company 11, the Museum offers rich cultural displays and knowledgeable docents. There is no charge for admission, but donations are gratefully accepted.

LAFD Museum and Memorial

1355 North Cahuenga Boulevard

Hollywood, CA

You've seen the Los Angeles Fire Department's Historic Station 27 (1930-1992) in countless films and television shows. Now, on a limited basis, you can visit this renowned former firehouse, which is being transformed into the LAFD Museum. Also under development is a Memorial to Los Angeles Firefighters who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Thanks to the generous support of concerned citizens and dedicated members of the LAFD Historical Society, this vibrant and inspirational community asset will soon be open full-time in the heart of Hollywood. While development continues, the Museum will be open most Saturdays from 10 AM to 2 PM. Please call (323) 464-2727 for more information, or visit the LAFD Historical Society website for details and to see photos of Museum development in progress.

Admission is Free!
