My son is a Firefighter/Paramedic and when I found out there was a museum in the area when I was visiting I made time to visit. It was fascinating. I have never been to a Fire museum before and I was amazed at all the displays and engines they had. I will be back next summer and I plan to... More

when you step inside, you'll be fired up for history. the staff are nice and the admission is only 5 dollars. The first floor just contains the offices, a small gift area right as you walk in and an impressive display of modern as well as antique fire engines including Ford and Ahrens-Fox. in the back of the display room...

It's just hard to get excited about fire trucks, but they do have a kids section downstairs where kids can play so maybe if there were some little ones with me then I could enjoy their happiness and excitement, but I'm too old to get excited about this myself. It's good to see that these old trucks are being preserved... More

The museum is handicap accessible and very clean. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The only downside is very little parking. But since it's off the beaten trail, we had no parking issue. The equipment is very nice and not dusty. There are plenty to see for any fire museum enthusiasts.

The new museum is attached to an old fire station that closed in the 1970s. The old fire station provides a glimpse of what these stations looked like in the past and the new museum has many examples of fire fighting equipment and early fire trucks. The building is clean with three floors of exhibits and the displays are well-organized.... More

One of the early fire stations in Ypsilanti was purchased and added onto to create this museum. There are many early horse drawn fire engines along with early fire trucks. It is a very nice collection of fire equipment that is very nicely displayed.

Lived in Ypsi for years and had never been. Took my grandkids there one afternoon for something to do. They found it fascinating. The firetrucks range from horse drawn to more recent designs. Many pictures and displays to look at. Worth a visit.

Lots of antique fire engines and equipment. Well worth a visit. The building itself is very interesting and the pictures of the changes over time as intriguing.

Never thought I'd be interested in a fire house museum but prompted by a young nephew I went. I learned a lot, and the evolution of firefighting engines and technology was intriguing. Worth a visit.

If you like fire engines, you'll love this museum! Located in a historic firehouse a short walk from Ypsilanti's Depot Town, this museum features fire engines from recent times all the way back to horse-drawn engines of yesteryear, most restored to their original condition. Walk through on your own or take a guided tour as your interest and time allow.....
