  • This is an interesting museum run by firefighters who were ever so eager to tell us the story on this firehouse. It was really interesting  more »
  • Free museum with a small but pretty cool exhibition. The man who works here is awesome! I highly recommend stopping by and getting a t-shirt. The sell those for a noble cause: to support a fireman who battles cancer at the time.
  • The men who work here are very nice. They are very knowledgeable of the history of the firehouse and fire engines and we're happy to show us around. They have a sweet dalmation that the kids love! The only downfall to the place is that it is a bit cramped, but it's just because there are apparatuses parked in there. One is an antique firetruck that the kids can sit on and pretend to drive.
  • Walked by on way out of the Children's Museum and checked it out. There's not a lot but my 5 year old loved it and it's free and convenient so hard to beat.
  • Most kids seemed to have a lot of fun. Others didn't seem as interested. It has a good space for a birthday party but there isn't much to do.
  • super interesting, unique, special, only in Boston ! All the gentlemen in red shirts are volunteers who keep the museum, all are very helpful,knowledgeable, and willing to talk to you and answer all your questions about the history of Boston Fire Department, fire history, and the antique fire equipment in the museum as well as all the new fire trucks in use today. They are also patient with the many ill behaved children who have not been taught manners by their parents.
