Visit the Museum

To visit the Bare Cove Fire Museum will be to experience firsthand the exciting development of firefighting technology as it occurred throughout other farming communities, especially in New England.

With an extraordinary collection of artifacts, equipment, and documents, along with the restored antique fire apparatus, Bare Cove Fire Museum tells the story of the men and machines who worked heroically to save lives and property. 

Since 1974, this nonprofit educational institution has been dedicated to the preservation and presentation of firefighting history as it occurred in the town of Hingham, Massachusetts.
