About Us


The museum is currently closed to visitors due to COVID-19. We look forward to your visit when we are safely able to re-open.

Visit the Museum

 A visit to the Bare Cove Fire Museum brings guests back to a time before smoke alarms, 9-1-1 systems, and the many other modern, life saving technologies we are fortunate enough to have today.

With an extraordinary collection of artifacts, equipment, and documents, including restored motorized fire apparatus, the Bare Cove Fire Museum tells the story of the exciting development of firefighting technology as it occurred throughout other farming communities, especially in New England.

This remarkably complete record of one community's past offers a very special opportunity to learn how firefighting developed in cities and towns like Hingham, all across America.

Great for all ages

A tour of the Bare Cove Fire Museum offers visitors of all ages an opportunity to relive an exciting era in the history of the fire service in America.
