Loved this place. The guy that works there is a former firefighter and he is very friendly and informative. The old fire truck with it's wooden spokes is cool.

We came across this museum when we are coming out from Crest Hotel going to Cow Bay. The museum is having a very nice collection of Prince Rupert Fire Department. The caretaker is so passionate about it.
