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.

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