Took my two grand kids, 4 and 7 mos. plus three adults last Tuesday, 2/11. Small enough to corral and interest a very active four year old boy, nice toddler play area on the second floor, many interactive activities. I learned some new things, too. Can imagine it's pretty crowded on weekends, but for a mid-week activity, it's great, especially when weather precludes outdoor activities.... or you need a break from them.

This 2 story museum is downtown by the convention center. If you go during the week, there is adequate parking on the street of the museum. I imagine it would be more crowded during the weekend. I took my 3 children there and they loved it. The lower level is more museum-esque with lots of old firefighting items, but they are locked away in glass lockers so you don't have to worry about the kids not touching delicate things. They have several engines on display and one the kids can pretend to drive and climb on. There is also a station to dress up as a firefighter and try a fire pole... only about 5 feet worth so it's not dangerous. Upstairs has more interactive fun with a play house that is used to practice fire escape; a building block station for creating a fire station, and even an area to practice stop, drop and roll with fake flannel flames. The admit price is very cheap.

A kid friendly museum - they had a lot of activities that I'm sure kids would love. They have fire trucks and lots of interactive activities. A small museum.

This small museum is a great place to bring toddlers. Grandchildren enjoyed dressing in firefighters' hats and coats and playing in the big red engine and sliding down the pole. They also enjoyed the books and computer games upstairs. Gift shop is very reasonably priced.
