A colorful history of firefighting equipment. You will want to take pictures inside and outside, as well as in the adjacent park and fountain. Also, the ‘host’ is friendly and can recommend the best restaurants and other things to see.

They have a trolley running withing certain hours of the day. But service is very limited, so you should relly on your feets to walk around the center, and your car to go to the different atractions out of the center.
