Very interesting place to visit where the kids actually get to touch stuff! My son loved his birthday party here; all the kids did, even the girls! Great staff who made it very interesting for everyone! Many thanks to the terrific employees.

The Fire Museum is a GREAT place for kids -- especially for birthdays! It's a great place to take kids and let them see how everything works. Also, the huge fire hydrant is a fun picture place

Great place for family and Firefighters from far off places to visit. They have lots of very old equipment, still in great condition!

Nice museum and awesome park. Nice rendition of fire fighting history. Great park with memorials and largest working fire hydrant in America. Yes it came from Disney ant the remake of 101 Dalmatians but cool nonetheless.

This is a great stop for young kids who get to wear fireman gear and sit in a mock fire engine. They also have several old-time fire engines and an upstairs play area for kids. For adults, they have an almost exhaustive combination of memorabilia...More

We like seeing oversized items like the hydrant and enjoyed seeing all of the older trucks and equipment. Some items were well explained such as why it is called a fire plug but the communication equipment had little description. There was a section where you...More

Fantastic bit of firefighting history and equipment displays. Also run a first class fire safety camp for youngsters during the summer months as well as some in school outreach.
