The retired fire fighters and retired fire chief were very friendly. They gave us a complete tour of the museum and had many stories to share about Key West.

The volunteers are personable and have long history in Key West. Our docent was basically a walking/talking encyclopedia. Outstanding collections of various items related to the firefighters. Highly recommend 😊
