    Thank you Memphis firefighters for running such a great museum. Thank you for preserving history. This place is great.

    Very interesting museum, and something I've not seen in other cities (though they may well exist and I just never visited or saw them). They have some very cool historical fire equipment and engines, as well as an area where kids can dress up and play. The play area isn't particularly expansive, but my 3 year old played for almost 2 hours with his friends at a birthday party here and didn't want to leave because he was still having fun.
