We had no idea that this was there, but went on a whim. I was fascinated by the many types of firetrucks through the ages,all of which were magnificently refurbushed. The interactive displays and a "Disney-like" show on home fire safety was excellent. We got discount tickets, but I would recommend this even if it were full price!

If your child likes fire truck and you want to see some antique engines then you better head on over to visit this place. There is a play area for the children to play and even educational video about fire hazards in the home.

Not worth the $... I guess if you are a fireman or historian this might be interesting to you. Nothing to get too excited about. Got more enjoyment looking out the window while driving downtown!

my kids had fun and its educational for them too. Admission is only $6 and kids under 13 yrs old are free. Also you might find $1 off coupon from those free charleston area maps.
