  • A real tribute to our firefighters!!! Great showing of antique apparatus! A real tribute to firefighters!!! Great shirts in gift shop!!! 
  • A lot of very interesting displays. School groups get a lot of hands on experiences. Everyone gets to play with water. You learn a lot from the staff. 
  • It was awesome, so many engines. My 4 year old grandson loved it. He loves fire engines. The children's corner was a break for him as he said playtime! Which gave us a minute to catch our breath and not have to think of entertainment for him because he is after all 4. Price was reasonable when looking at Disney and other amusement activities for kids. I was quite impressed. I highly recommend this museum.
  • You should really come hear and learn about the trucks! Great for people without kids too! Lots of history in this building
  • This is a great place for adults to visit, you can spend hours reading and admiring the history of firefighters. My 2 year old was not amused as he could not rich 90% of what was on display. My 9 year old enjoyed herself but we both complained on how some exhibit areas were not as air conditioned as others. Don't expect excellent customer service front the front entrance people, they are older and offer no enthusiasm or appealing personality. Overall a good experience but would not return to visit this place.
  • Impressive collection of fire truck but one of the guy really grumpy.
  • Impressive collection. Really great, especially if you like firetrucks.
