“Great for the Little Ones”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

It's small and simple, but the little ones got to ring the fire bell and the docent was very knowledgable. The old carriage and history was amazing.

“Cool artifacts!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

I really like this particular museum because it's an important part of history that endures today (firefighting), and they've done a great job of maintaining what they have--fire pumps, wagons, buckets from 1774 bucket brigades--it's cool! It's free to go, but by all means support them if you can. $2 donation suggested, but they really don't pressure you. It's the fire department George started, for goodness' sake! =)

“Interesting part of Fire History”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2009

If you have an interest in the history of the Fire Service then this is an interesting place to pop in to. It contains two old appliances,one horse drawn and one pulled by humans! plus a couple of exhibits. Upstairs are a few photo's and correspondence about the Fire Company.

The building currently has scaffolding up and is just off of King Street. If you have an interest then it's worth 30 minutes of your time.
