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

Liked this museum although i have been to better. But it's has a very good 9/11 tribute with a fascinating insight into how this affected first responders and brings the human side the news does not always report. I found that very good. A lot of fire trucks through the ages including some British exhibits and a great shop well... More

We have taken several different children here and they have all loved it. The children can climb on one of the fire trucks, put on the fireman's hat and coat, etc.

Great place to take the kids. If you run out of places of interest to take your out of town guests this is it.

The website states that it is the largest fire fighting museum in the world and after visiting I think it is. Admission is very reasonable at $7.00 and under depending on age. It is very well laid out and if you really enjoy historic vehicles you could easily spend 2-3 hours. You don't really need to just be interested in... More

What a gem we found when we decided to visit this incredible museum which had been covered in an issue of the AAA magazine. There is equipment dating back to 1725 representing firefighting from all over the world. All equipment has been thoroughly restored. We couldn't tour the exhibit without gaining an appreciation for the difficulties, improvements and honor in... More

Great place to see collectable old Fire trucks and equipment. Historic museum and also memorial to the 911 Fire fighters, Easy strolling amongst the numerous fire trucks etc. Though dimly lit inside it's a great place for antique buffs and family and kids to explore.
