  • Way more content than I would have assumed! Everyone wad friendly and knowledgeable, the gift store was comically cheap (we bought gifts for nieces and nephews) and took a million pictures with my fascinated 2 year old son. This is a great place to let the kids explore while learning a fair amount yourself.
  • Hidden gem. This place is never busy yet is jam packed with great historical info and is loads of fun for the kids and educational!
  • This is a great museum for young and old. Watch a movie upstairs while the kids play downstairs in an area just for them. Dress up in firemen's clothes, take funny picture and enjoy lots of interesting history.
  • Great museum for any kiddo that loves fire fighters. Kids loved it! Curator is a bit uptight, was very stern when my 4y/o son touched the bumper of the scio rig in the middle of the main floor display...
  • Surprisingly Interesting. I accompanied someone who really likes fire trucks and fire fighting in general and was prepared to be bored. But I was pleasantly surprised at how interesting and well done this museum is. Plan about 2 hours to see everything. Admission: $5.00
