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.

Just okay. Probably fun if you have a kid who is very into a firefighter stage. I wouldn't go out of my way.

As a firefighter I found this museum very nice. The history of the fire service in Fort Wayne and the fire that consumed the Catholic Church is very interesting.
