The Fire Museum is a GREAT place for kids -- especially for birthdays! It's a great place to take kids and let them see how everything works. Also, the huge fire hydrant is a fun picture place

Great place for family and Firefighters from far off places to visit. They have lots of very old equipment, still in great condition!

Fantastic bit of firefighting history and equipment displays. Also run a first class fire safety camp for youngsters during the summer months as well as some in school outreach.
