2022 Fire Museum Seminar
Slinger, Wisconsin

Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown Baton Rouge.

It is a mix of formal presentations, informal discussions, and tours of local fire and non-fire museum sites…. It’s educational seminars about both operating a museum and firefighting history…. It’s for those who are just starting a fire museum, and those who have been around a while…. It is a time to learn, and a place to see and hear what dozens of other museums are doing (or perhaps what they should be doing)…. It is a chance for you to share problems and solutions, exchange ideas and information, and compare your organization with others…. It is an opportunity network. It is late nights spent discussing how many steam fire engines are left in the country, new exhibit techniques, or the merits of the latest museum collections database program. In short, it's… great friends, great food, and great fun! ///// We are working hard here in BR to meet the challenge of having the biggest and best Seminar yet and are looking forward to seeing everyone in May of 2022. Dates are set May 19 thru 22nd, rooms are set aside at the Hampton Inn and Suites Downtown Baton Rouge, a site for the seminar is chosen and the Bogan Fire Museum, and events and speakers are being put together!

Please follow the Robert A. Bogan Fire Museum on Facebook for updates and info coming up.
