“Modern museum in a shabby city”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Newly built museum in a century-old building destroyed by fire in 80s. You go from the first floor up to the 3rd looking at progress of fireman equipment. After that you use a ladder to come down into the center of the building where 3 fire fighting vehicles are stored. You can open cars and get in. There is nobody in the museum, so it's quite and you can spend as much time inside as you want. All cars are well restored and are nice to look at and touch.

Nobody speaks English and almost all explanatory text is in Spanish. So, basically, you look at cars, axes and fireman suites.

There are enough parking spaces on the opposite side of the road next to demolished building. There is no need in using paid parking in the center.

You won't be able to look at the cars if you use a wheelchair.

Museum is a 1.5 hour drive from Valencia.

There are almost no visitors (we were first visitors in the past 5 days) and this is a nice place to take a break from the heat outside.
