We were here for a special event. The food was great and the room was really interesting upstairs. It is an old building, but the chef is experienced and the food was presented just like a special event!

This is a nice little museum in the heart of downtown Ft. Wayne. If you've got an hour to kill, you could do worse!

Volunteers have made this fire museum first rate. Lots of interesting historical photographs decorate the walls. Lots of small items and memorabilia. Several nicely restored Ft. Wayne fire trucks are on display. Especially interesting is a wonderful 1953 Cadillac ambulance, the likes of which I've never seen before. Great place!

I love this museum in downtown Ft Wayne! The old firetrucks gleam and are displayed so people can view them up close and personal! I esp. am intrigued by the iron lung that used to be carried on trucks for polio victims. Upstairs they provide educational area to teach kids about fire safety. High recommended for kids.

We really enjoyed this museum. My grandson's liked seeing all the old fire trucks and equipment. It is a small museum but has a nice collection of exhibits and the volunteer was really informative.

This museum is curated and administered by firefighters -- in addition to the wonderful historical equipment, they run safety programs. They also have a small cafe on the top floor which is a real treat.
