  • The largest, most comprehensive firefighting museum I've ever seen. Allow at least 4 hrs to see and appreciate all the work that has gone into restoring and maintaining the apparatus. Amazing collection, exquisitely restored and presented with explanation placards. Huge Dept patch collection. $7 admission. Staffed by volunteers who will lend you a guide binder explaining the artifacts. Nice gift shop, the only place where a mini version of painted pony shown below can be bought new, 1 of 343. Worth the trip, located on East Van Buren at the SRP turnout. Lots of parking free.
  • A very nice find. If you're a firefighter, or have kids that love firefighters, it is worth the price of admission. There are a huge assortment of motorized and non-motorized fire apparatus, protective clothing displays and we'll as tributes to wildland firefighters, EMS professionals and firefighters from around the world.
  • Great place for the kids. The little ones will enjoy climbing on and 'driving' the old fire truck. There are a couple of other kid-friendly play areas. Great photo-ops for parents. Great for birthday parties. Kids can get a ride on a pumper and actually pump water from the truck.
  • The museum in itself it's pretty awesome! Lots to learn but the staff were pretty rude. I was visiting from New York with my 10 year old son and he actually was intimidated by their unfriendly attitude. It will be a better place if they were at least more kid friendly.
  • This is a really informative place with unlimited material and cool photo ops...my only critique would be I wish the staff was more friendly...but still I would recommend this place at least once!
