The idea of founding a Museum of the Firemen in Bucharest occurred in 1960, and it was promoted by General Pamfil Tatu who, together with his team of subordinates, desired to make use of the Fire Tower of Bucharest, a historical structure erected between 1891 and 1892. The Fire Tower was, in the second half of the 20th century, a derelict structure formerly used as a crucial facility by the fire department of the city.

The project materialized no sooner than 1963, and since then it showcases the history of the fire department institution in Bucharest with an understandable emphasis on the achievements and bravery of the firefighters. Highlights refer to pictures of the most spectacular fires ever occurred in Bucharest.
