Historical Museum of Firefighters of Milan

Memorabilia, memories and history of the most loved body in the world: the Firefighters. A place of wonder and memory where you can retrace the 213 years of the body and rediscover in their deeds their goodness of mind and loyalty towards uniform, something that is perfectly reflected in the care of the museum and in the enthusiasm of telling the audience.

The Museum Route

Thanks to MuseoCity, a non-profit association, it is possible to visit the Historical Museum of Firefighters, the same one that opens its doors to the public for the first time.
The museum tour allows enthusiasts and non-enthusiasts to discover a fascinating private treasure that traces, through the story of the body, the history of Italy.
Inside the museum you can “touch” with your hands everything that has to do with the Fire Fighters: from work tools to means of transport, from uniforms to communication devices. And everything that runs parallel and collateral to them: from the health care service (active until the early 1900s) to the gymnastic body (where Carlo Galimberti was active, to whom the Milan Sports Group is now dedicated, award-winning Firefighter and champion Olympic, who lost his life heroically in the exercise of duty).

Firefighters: Knights and Heroes

This historical and cultural journey tells of men and women where the firmness of the spirit is equal to that of the ancient medieval knights. Those who made honor, courage, loyalty and mercy their principles.
Heroes who, when we are in trouble, are always the first to intervene. To have a word of encouragement and show us the way to resist.
The museum in every object, in every word of its guides and in every detail taken care of transmits the love that these men and women have for the Firefighters. And as the prayer of Saint Barbara , patroness of the body says: “A day without risk is not lived, because for us believers death is life, it is light: in the terror of collapses, in the fury of the waters, in the hell of the pyres. “

  1. It has been a while since we visited any museum because of the pandemic. This one is really interesting. I am not sure if my little one would not find this creepy though because of the figures.

  2. Wow, this is so cool I would love to visit this firefighter museum. The old fire truck is nice would love to have a picture with it.

  3. Wow the fashion of firefighters is pretty cool. I had no idea this museum existed, I also did not get to Milan when I went to Italy though.

  4. What an interesting museum. I don’t think I have ever heard about a museum of the firefighters before. I’d like to visit next time I’m in Milano.

  8. How beautiful! I love museums but sadly have been staying away from them since that virus thing happened. Not worth risking it, but I sure do miss walking through those aisles and reading up on history and art! Milan sounds like such a beautiful city and is surely on my bucket list for travel, now I have another reason to go – blessings!

  9. This is truly amazing! I lived in Milan for over 3 years and have never heard of this Museum, which is sad cause I LOVE Museums. I will definitely add this to my list next time I make my way to my favorite city in the world!

  10. So beautiful! I love when places pay tribute to our heroes. In Armenia for example there is a museum for our fallen soldiers of Artsakh
