I had looked forward to going to this museum with my fireman husband but to our dismay, the museum was closed. While walking, we noticed an active firehouse around the block and inquired about the museum. The firefighters there said they open the museum during the summer "for children" but that it had been closed for a couple months. The... More

This is a small but amazing museum the tour guides are helpful and knowledgeable, they were able to answer all my questions. There is two floors, a old fire truck which they let us sit in! There is also a old hand pump. The stories they tell are fascinating! I would definitely recommend this museum to everyone!

This museum has various types of firefighting equipment inside and is run by volunteers. It covers two floors and includes photos of fightfighters and their various commendations. There's also a fireman's pole, probably for use by children.
