  • 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
  • This museum is a hidden gem in Ypsilanti! We spent about 2 hours and really enjoyed all of the exhibits - they have several full size vehicles along with a good variety of other interesting objects both historic and current. The Michigan Firehouse Museum is definitely well worth visiting!
  • Very nice historical place. Kids get to learn so much about fire safety.
  • A hidden gem in Ypsi. I was amazed at how big it was and how many fire trucks they had on exhibit.
  • Very cool museum with lots of history on display. Definitely worth checking out.
