This was our first vist and the title says it all. The equipment is in first rate condition, most of them lovely restored by a single individual. There are six halls to visit and if you take your time you can easily spend three hours as we did. Make sure that you spend a least an hour in the hall... More

I have been here before, but my Grandsons were excited to see all the different fire engines. From the time you check into the Hall till you leave you are in ah of all the cool things to see. Great Job of putting this Museum together

This little museum far surpassed expectations. They have lots of beautiful old fire engines and wagons that you can examine closely. The fireman at the door sold our tickets and loaned us a book that gave details of each exhibit. We only had about an hour before we had to leave for the airport, and we did not think we... More

Went with my husband, a retired volunteer firefighter. We both thought the museum was excellent and liked the separate rooms for each type of rigs. It was very educational to see fire apparatus from the 1700s and the ornate fire trucks that were used for parades. We really enjoyed the National Firefighting Hall of Heroes and the tribute to 9/11.... More

It is a smaller site but has a lot of exhibits. The children loved the hands on part. They liked being able to get into the fire engines and wear the fire hats.

This is a must see for anyone interested in the history of fire engines & equipment in the U.S. The museum is easily manageable all on one floor. Done in historical fashion the museum depicts the progress made by fire equipment through time. We were with another couple who has owned a fire engine and they couldn't believe the thought... More

They did a great job arranging all of the fire trucks, they really maximized their space so I did not feel as though I had to do a lot of walking but I also did not feel like the facility was "cluttered". Young or old, there is something for everyone!

We took our two grandchildren (ages 4 and 10) to this museum and all four of us ended up really enjoying the experience. The ten year old and I got caught up in the excitement of the live call center and map showing all the actual calls coming in to the city of Phoenix fire fighters. The four year old... More
