Reading Area Fire Museum to Host Open House

The Reading and Berks County community is invited to a free open house at the Reading Fire Museum to celebrate National Fire Prevention month and the 275TH Anniversary of the City of Reading on Saturday, September 30th from 10 AM to 2 PM.

The free open house will include guided tours of each museum room by museum volunteer staff depicting the evolution of our community and firefighting methods dating to the beginning in 1771.  See how our community grew and how the volunteer fireman used leather buckets to suppress fires with the help of citizens who formed bucket brigades to bring water to the fire.

There is so much to see and experience, including visiting our “Fire Museum Store” before you leave which helps to support our mission.

Fire Museum Open House Day is free and fun for the whole family! Parking is available in the neighborhood. All children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
