Aurora’s old Central Fire Station

Visitors are sure to get fired up at the Aurora Regional Fire Museum.

The museum, housed in Aurora’s old Central Fire Station, is home to seven pieces of fire truck apparatus, from an 1850s Hand Pumper to a 1995 Aerial Ladder Truck, and thousands of artifacts such as hats, hoses and ladders.

Visitors should be sure to catch one of the museum’s various exhibits and programs. One such program immerses guests in the intrigue surrounding the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, and guests can peruse artifacts that survived the fire.
