Hop on your own ATV on this off-roading adventure in the Sonoran Desert. After a safety briefing and training, gear up and ride across rugged, rocky trails in the scenic Bradshaw Mountains, as well as cross the Agua Fria River. Be on the lookout for coyotes, bobcats, and more, and learn about the region's flora and fauna and Native American history from your guide.

My husband and I spent the better part of the afternoon at this museum. Being from a paid to volunteer fire department family this place was absolutely wonderful. The total history of the fire fighting service, as well as, international fire history is found there. Just about all 50 states are represented whether it is a piece of equipment or a department patch. All aspects of the fire service is recognized from the cities to the smoke jumpers. The tribute room displays many photos and articles of heroes and fallen heroes, including the Granite Mountain Hotshots and the World Trade Center Port of Authority. The director, Chuck and Tim were very personable and enlightening as they both came from a paid fire department background. Highly recommend!!

Knowledgeable and entertaining guide who not only told us about the different types of fire fighting equipment but the history of fire fighting throughout since the 1700's.

Loved this museum dedicated to the history of American heros, our fire fighters. This museum is absolutely packed with fire trucks from years gone by. All are in beautiful condition. The self guided, self explanatory tour is easy to follow and extremely informative. The size of the museum is overwhelming. There is even a children's section. There is a superb gift shop which has some really neat things as well. The staff are very friendly and helpful. If you ever wanted to be a fireman as a kid or just want to see an amazing tribute to a noble profession and learn something on the way, I highly recommend visiting the museum if you're in the area. Or, if you are a local and haven’t visited yet, then shame on you!

We have avoided going there for years on our trips to Phoenix thinking that it wouldn't have much of interest, but we were really wrong. We spent over three hours there today looking and and learning about historic fire trucks and the story of firefighting, and we were really intrigued by everything we saw. They had hand-pulled and horse-pulled fire trucks going back to 1725, and up to really modern ones. They had a very special truck from the 9/11 attack which had been restored, and several others of historical note. We loved the video about a family that found and lovingly restored an old 1902 steam fire engine, and we saw a beautifully restored one in the museum. In short, this place is a treasure and really worth a visit.

Huge fire fighting museum representing very early fire fight equipment through modern times from various states and several foreign countries. Very well laid out with a carry along loose leaf binder explaining each exhibit. They even have trucks and equipment from the 9-11 World Trade Center. Great place to visit and will be back again.
