Tour Information

This is a great afternoon for the whole family, with special surprises for future firefighters. You will:

  • Take a 40-minute guided tour filled with stories and little-known details about the African American firefighters’ legacy here in Los Angeles.
  • Explore the grounds of our historic Fire Station No. 30, which operated as a segregated firehouse from 1924 to 1955.
  • Enjoy unique and fun photo opportunities.

Visits are currently timed entry, beginning with a tour. Tours are open to the public on Sundays and start promptly at 1:00 pm, 2:00 pm, and 3:00 pm. Please reserve your ticket for the tour time you’d like, and plan to arrive 15 minutes early. Before and after the tour, guests are welcome to enjoy additional museum activities available outside. As additional dates are added, they will be announced on Eventbrite and Facebook.

While all current tours are open to the public, AAFFM does have the capacity to host private group tours of 10 guests or more. Organizations interested in taking a private group tour must complete the request form below.
