Found this to be a very interesting place. It gave quite an insight as to the evolution of water bombing in fighting forest fires

We really enjoyed our time at the museum. The films were enjoyable. Lots of information, very educational for all. A piece of history locked in a time capsule you can walk through! Great for all ages.
