We stopped here because of our interest in the fire - I'm guessing that's why most people stop here, and there were quite a few guests on the day we visited. However, this is really a historical museum, and not a very good one. It mainly has stuff, stuff, stuff on display with very little signage. If you love gawking at old dolls, clothes, cash registers, etc., you'll enjoy it. If you're not into that stuff, you'll be disappointed. The parts of the museum that are related to the fire are exactly one photo of a building burning, a very small display case with a few articles that were saved from the fire or burned beyond recognition, and some of the graves in the adjacent cemetery (including the mass grave containing 350 victims of the fire, which was very sobering). Frankly, it is quite obvious that the only reason they named this museum the "Fire Museum" is to draw unsuspecting visitors in. I find this dishonest and distasteful.
