Visited here our first day in New Bern, since it was raining off and on that day. It was a little confusing finding the museum at first, it appears that they are preparing to move the museum to the old New Bern Fire Station, and the sign for the museum is right in front of the old Fire Station, but the building is currently empty. It's a small museum, with several old pieces of fire apparatus, some horse drawn and an old crank start ladder truck and an old engine, along with pictures and stories from New Bern firefighting history. They also have a small store inside where they sell some books, postcards, T-shirts and such. There is a small admission fee. Only downside is that it seems a little crowded with all the equipment, and the before noted confusion with the location. Once they complete the move to the old fire station, those problems should be resolved.
