Good time for kids, they have every firetruck ever used in New Bedford. Kids can dress up and slide down poles. If your kid loves fire fighter then this is a must do.

A locally run museum by a retired fire fighter. Lots of great history to learn and lots of fun activities for kids. Everyone should experience this museum at least once.
