Of course my husband is a firefighter and he loved it. Great place to take kids that like this kind of thing. Informational and a lot of history. People were nice. Self guided is fine and does not take very long.

Found this place while exploring downtown and my kids really enjoyed it. While there the firemen noticed a couple families were out visiting and brought around a fire truck to let our kids explore and were super nice! Thank you guys for all you do!

Great photo opportunity. Young children will get a kick out of it. The museum was ok. Interesting to see the old time fire trucks and a little history on the evolution of fire fighting.

We were surprised but how much was packed into such a relatively small area. I have never seen so many different fire trucks/carts/engines plus firehoses, nozzles, pumps, hydrants, whistles, station patches etc. If you have a child that likes fire engines they will enjoy this...More
