Owner description: Memphis' Hottest Attraction!!! America’s premier interactive fire museum is in the legendary Fire Engine House No. 1 in downtown Memphis. Step back in time to a turn-of-the-century firehouse. Fight the flames of a burning skyscraper from a snorkel basket simulator. Take a look at the horse-drawn era of firefighting from the horse’s perspective! Test your ability to find an escape route to survive a fire. Feel the heat of the FEDEX Fire Room. Learn about the most devastating fires in the history of Memphis. Discover the proud history of Memphis’ first African-American firefighters. And many more hot attractions!

Not a long visit required but very informative. There are lots of things to read and do. Not far from mississippi mud park, so you can get a visit in there too or catch the tram service

My daughter LOVES fire trucks. She had such a blast being able to see the fire trucks, climb on them and learn about fire safety displays and info they had. Just wish they had more girl stuff in their store. I ended up buying her a boy's tshirt because the only girl stuff they had were smocked dresses/outfits (my daughter doesn't do dresses). Very cheap for what you get too!

Learn the history and see some good exhibits of fire fighting. Great for children and adults. The museum is self guided so we were not rushed. Lots of equipment to view.. Worth the trip.

My little boy loves this place. He especially likes the area where he can play on the engines and ambulance. He still talks about it all of the time.
