Welcome to the new and improved Fire Museum of Memphis website, America's Premiere Fire Museum! Due to a grant from FEMA, we have been able to redesign our website and also update some of our fire safety exhibits. Our newest upgrade, The Fire Safety Arcade, is almost complete and in the testing phase. We will be updating the website weekly so please keep coming back to see what is new!

  • We are well underway with the upgrade of new exhibits at the FMOM.  We always are thinking about our visitors, wanting them to have a positive experience here.  The new FedEx Fire Room, and AutoZone Educational Center housing the 100 Club Fire Safety House and Safety Maze are on schedule to be completed by June, 2014.  The FMOM is working closely with Design 500 on this project.  Mind Over Data Custom Software Development is testing the Arcade Room Fire and Safety Games as our deadline of April 1, 2014 approaches for that grand opening. 

    The FMOM will announce the Shelby County Consolidated School District winner and present the “Turnout” Trophy Award to the winning school bringing the most students to the museum for the past school year.  And the museum has an upcoming announcement concerning ground breaking renovations for our Guardsmark Children’s Play Area, thanks to the Plough Foundation. The museum is working with K-Designs in that effort. The museum estimates all the myriad changes will be finished by June 2014.

  • Thanks to the Founder and Chairman of Hero Portraits, Darrell Lynn, and the Assisi Foundation, the FMOM will receive a new exhibit, “Honoring Our Heroes,” created by Darrell.  “Honoring Our Heroes” opened in Central Park on September 10, 2011, the day before the 10th anniversary of 9-11.  The exhibit honors the 343 First Responders who gave their lives at the World Trade Center site on September 11, 2001.  The Assisi Foundation’s contribution will allow the museum the opportunity to create a full scale exhibit around Darrell’s creation and honor the Tennessee Task Force for their service at the Pentagon after 9-11.  Grand opening is expected in late 2014.
