There sure were. The story is so interesting, the fire engines in pristine condition, and the docents a wealth of information. We loved the pink and blue color scheme.

Normally the museum is open Mon thru Sat 10 am to 4 pm. Adult admission is $ 7, students are $4 and under 6 years is free. I do not know if they are open Thanksgiving Day, but I would think they would not be open.
