Canadian Fire Fighters Museum

Attraction details
Reviewed June 30, 2015

I thoroughly enjoyed the informative historical exhibits on firefighting and my grandson was thrilled by the interactive exhibits that allowed him to be like a firefighter himself! Would love to see this attraction get a better location to do justice to the amazing collection of firefighting equipment and history.

We discovered this gem during Doors Open Northumberland. I'll stick to logistics since others have covered material in the museum. Admission is by donation. Parking is easy and close to entrance. All one level - suits those with mobility issues (not wheelchairs) Most of it is indoors - so it makes a good rainy day activity. Plan to spend 30-60 minutes - depending on how much detail you want. Very interesting to see what firefighters actually carry and how they use it. Fascinating. We learned a lot.

We really enjoyed visiting the Firefighter's Museum. There are so many antique firetrucks and equipment here as well as photos and information. There was no admission cost and the displays and staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend.

It was really fun. There were staff to ask questions but they also highlighted interesting objects. I thought it was great for people interested in the history and was educational but, what was really nice is it was fun as an amusement visit too. They had an awesome collection of fire trucks and some interactive features as well.

Now this is a most interesting museum. They have worked very hard to gather fire fighter items and memorabilia from all over the place and we found it most fascinating. The volunteer on the desk was also quite knowledgeable. Anyone interested in our past history should visit this museum. We'll go back.
