We were traveling up to Kingston and we had some spare time. In previous trips I had seen the signs for the museum along the 401, so we decided to stop by the museum and we were very glad we did.
It's currently located in a medium-sized building that is jam packed with memorabilia, artifacts, and vintage to modern equipment. It's managed by volunteers who are obviously enthusiastic about what they do. There is a shed nearby with additional vehicles.
They have a good problem in that they have many more artifacts than they can display in the space they have; fortunately they are in talks with the city to secure a much larger building nearby. if successful, they will be able to display much more of the collection.
They cover all aspects of firefighting; from forest-fire fighting, to structural, to airport equipment and crew gear. There's plenty for children to explore and a fair amount of hands-on activities.
And there are enough fireplugs (hydrants) there to make any dog think that they've died and are now in Paradise :-)
