  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Pretty cool fire trucks that came with a personal tour. Good job guys!
  • Good little museum with plenty of vintage things.
  • Didn't even know that this existed! Went for a childs birthday party ( they rent out the upstairs ). Really cool historical pieces! Worth a check if you are walking through the area!

Where to stay in Boston

To stay close to where most of Boston's tourist action is, book a room at one of the many hotels located downtown, near the center of the city and state governments, businesses, and shopping. For a more affordable option, consider a budget-friendly boutique hotel or small bed and breakfast in one of the city's diverse residential neighborhoods. If you plan to stay longer and need a real home away from home, explore Boston's short-term rental options, which include private villas, waterfront lofts, and luxury apartments scattered across the city's historical districts.
