This museum has so many fire engines in one place. One was built in the 1700's. Reading about each of the rigs was very enlightening. Fire fighting has come a long way.

If you like old fire fighting equipment, this is the perfect museum for. Amazing collection of old equipment. Unfortunately you are not able to touch any of the equipment. Alarms will sound if you get too close trying to get a picture of the helmet....More

My son at the time loved fire fighters, fire trucks, I thought it would be more interactive for the younger age. It is the history of fire trucks etc. A neat place for sure, but maybe for 8 to 9 years old and up.

A wonderful museum. Senior and AAA discounts. Truly a unique place. Great history. The fire engine equipment is marvelous. The history of fire fighters is one we should all know about.

I just finished my review of the Botanical Gardens in Phoenix and I have no idea why this place has less reviews than they do. The Gardens were over priced and mind numbingly boring. The Hall of Flame rocked plus it is so cheap! Two...More

I'm a retired firefighter, so this was pretty interesting to me. For the family not quite as much, though I think they found a few things interesting. Price was reasonable, $7 for adults and $5 for minors. Would be nice if there was a reduced...More

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.
