“Well worth the time and donation!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

There's a great deal of history in here - both of New Bern's Fire Department ("departments" for a brief time after the Civil War), and firefighting in general. Well worth stopping in here if you're in New Bern!

“It'll be better in the old firehouse when it's moved.”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

Fun, with lots of artifacts, but they were nasty to little boys visiting. BAD

“Personal Tour”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

We were the only ones visiting this interesting museum. Our guide gave us an in-depth overview of the history of New Bern and how some of the fabulous old fire equipment operated. Don't miss this !
