  • Great museum, but I have to agree with other reviews. Very bad service at the front desk, not kid freindly. It took away from the total experience. The staff at the back were very friendly and helpful. Also not air-conditioned.
  • 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.
  • Amazing historical collection. A real hidden gem of a museum!!
  • You should really come hear and learn about the trucks! Great for people without kids too! Lots of history in this building
  • Impressive collection. Really great, especially if you like firetrucks.
