Museum Tours



Schuylkill County, located in northeast Pennsylvania, has numerous tourist attractions rich in the history of mining, food, and fire engines. While visiting, planning your next trip or school field trip, stop by and step into the past!

The museum is open for fire department, school and private tours. While here, you can also visit the Schuylkill County Fallen Firefighter's Memorial. The memorial is located just a short drive from the museum, at the Schuylkill County fire training grounds.

The Schuylkill Historica Fire Society maintains a historical museum in part of its old station that was built in 1870. The museum encompasses two floors with artifacts dating back to its organization.

Both adults and children will find many articles of interest, including old leather fire buckets, Cairns High Eagle Helmets, meeting documents, and many ribbons. The museum also houses several other items which tell of the history of both the Columbia Hose & Steam Fire Engine Company and Shenandoah.

There is no charge for tours, but donations are accepted. Interested groups can find the contact information below on this page. Membership inquiries are also welcome.

Other interesting places to visit while in Schuylkill County are the Pioneer Tunnel & Coal Mine in Ashland and the Yuengling Brewery in Pottsville.

We hope to hear from you soon!
