This museum (İtfaiye Müzesi) presents a chronological history of fire fighting in Istanbul starting with the water pumpers, “tulumbacı” in Turkish, of Ottoman times. All kinds of fire brigade equipment, from the first motorized fire engines to firemen’s clothing and tools are displayed. The museum in its present building opened in 1992 within the main Fire Brigade headquarters in Fatih district, after many years of collecting and repairing the objects.
