My 3 years old loves Firefighters and their trucks so he had a great time there! Fantastic collection, only regret is there is only 1 truck where he could jump in. Still a small and cute museum.

Very cool experience. I recommend going if you have the chance. Lots of cool horse drawn pumpers, ladders and steamers. Humbling tribute to fallen firefighters and current firefighters alike.

The group I went with were 8 year old boys. They had activities that were age group we brought. There are "firetrucks" through the ages but mostly for looking not touching. I hope this helps.
