The number of fire-fighting related items are unbelievable a nd very enjoyable. Historic vehicles from the early days to the present. The displays are in clean, beautiful condition and it is fun for adults as well as children. Highly recommended for all.

I took 3 of my grandchildren. They enjoyed a little of everything. With the 3 different ages. They all had something to do. Keep them busy for a long time.

This place is great! It is small but they have some awesome fire trucks! The price is very reasonable. Children under 12 are free. It is educational on fire prevention and safety. My kids loved the fire pole and fire truck simulator.

This is a very cool museum for all kids who love fire trucks. They have it all. Firetrucks from the turn of the century to 1990s’. My kids loved the interactive firetruck (basically a simulator that screens the road from onto the windshield) and the...More

Very nice museum. Nice layout and very informational. The trucks were amazing. Since my brother is a fireman it was especially interesting to me. I never knew there were so many patches. I took lots of pictures and hope to frame one for my brother....More
