This is an interesting and informative museum and meeting space. We were there for a gathering, but took in the exhibits and photographs as well. There are some really cool old firetrucks. There's a lot to see in Memphis, but this is worth a look.

I don't know if I'd spend the money but with a 5 year old totally into fire trucks still he enjoyed it. Small but interactive things for the kids to do. The best part was quite a bit of it was designed to teach them fire safety.

Tried to visit twice but both times they were having private events. We had driven 30 minutes to get there. There was no warning or notice on the website. Call before you go. We won't be going back.

The museum is very educational and it was a good hands on experience in the life of a firefighter and EMS. We went for a birthday party and really had a good time. The most memorable part was the dark room, which stimulates a room filled with smoke.

Mainly a self guided tour but staff gave us loads of information too. Was really interesting and I loved seeing the old fire trucks and finding out how things had changed over the years. The video showing how fast a fire can take hold was scary but well done. Well worth a visit.

We took our 2 and 4 year old children right when they opened at 9am on a Wednesday morning. We were the only people there the entire time, but the staff was very attentive and friendly and helped us find our way and do all of the activities. The kids play area is AMAZING! There is a fire engine that... More

Nice little museum just off the main strip in Memphis - well worth the entrance fee. Some great exhibits.

This MADE our four year old boy's fire fighter dreams come true! They have all kinds of hands on activities that are perfect for the 3-6 year set.

Once we found parking & paid for a 'family pack' for $30 (one adult, one teen & 2 younger kids) we started our walk-thru. One of the workers was either extra helpful or bored because we were the only people visiting at that time, but either way he offered to give us a tour! I'm not sure if he expected... More
