What''s not to like. It shows the history of our fire brigade & all those brave dudes who kept us safe for the last century.

“Take a trip back in time.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

I visited with a group of Scouts ans the kids had a good time because the staff looked after them and were friendly. I would have liked more old historic fire trucks and appliances there, also more interactive displays but understand that room is at a premium. If you are interested in the history of the brigade it is worth a visit.
