It's very small, but it's free, and there's clean restrooms and water fountains inside.

The museum has a small but very interesting, well-organized, pristine collection of firefighting artifacts! Definitely worth a visit while you're in downtown Denton.

This is just a small little museum, but it is interesting, FREE, and they allowed us to go back and see where the firefighters live and also check out the trucks and emergency vehicles. My kids (6&3) loved it and also got to try on a real uniform. If you have small kids, this place is a very nice stop.

We took our four year old grandson for a visit that included a walk around the square and ice cream. The best part of the visit was visiting with the firefighters who were wonderful with our grandson. He walked away with a great red hat.

I took my young boys there for a quick outing and they really enjoyed themselves. It is a very small museum but going there mixed in with time spent on the square certainly made for a pleasant afternoon.
