This fire museum is in one of the old fire engine bays of the current town hall. It's a small collection but I found it all very interesting. There are old fire engines which were beauties, and I also liked the collection of photos showing...More

If your interested in history and specifically the machines used to fight fire. This is a great little display of some of the oldest fire engines ive seen. Great way to kill some time between micro brews.

So glad that we found this great little museum! Really well put together display, very informative. Small, but we still managed to spend about a half hour looking at everything. Love finding little gems like this!
