  • Wonderful place to visit so much history into fire fighting and all the old fire engines my two year old grandson loves going been several times now
  • Really lots of old fire engines and other equipments to see and learn history of fire service s.
  • Very nice collection of Fire fighting equipment set in the original Edinburgh Fire Station HQ. We took our kids and they loved it.
  • Really great collection of fire history, many original fire pumps from hand pumped to steam driven, all restored beautifully. My wife and I aren't usually fire history types but it's a wonderful visit. It was a guided tour which was wonderful and informative. I would highly recommend visiting, and it's free!
  • Very interesting from an historic perspective, and a wonderfully genial host who himself was a fire officer. Yes it's free but I was moved to leave a donation.
