The smaller displays on the walls bring a nice personal touch. The newer section honoring fallen firefighters is touching. Well worth your time and money. Plan on spending a couple of hours or...

There are ones that are made of glass that were simply decorative. There are historic and larger ones as well. There was an area... More

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.

There are lots of fire engines to see in this museum. There is also a very short film. It is not expensive to visit.

Husband is in the business so thought this would be a neat stop after the dreadful Botanical Garden and it was. There were lots of Awesome engines and equipment from historical times. It is not a giant facility so it's possible to get through it by an hour or so. Seems like a cool spot for families with young children... More

This was a great stop. Took about an hour and a half by myself to view everything. I could have spent more. Plenty of fire fighting equipment to see. A couple of videos. Area dedicated to those who lost their lives. I believe it's a must see if you are into fire services. Friendly helpful staff.
