This is a small fire museum that is interesting and gets you out of the hot sun! Good but small and my 5yo enjoyed it! Only takes about 30 mins to go thru

The brand new building is quite imposing, and the jumble of historical gear and notes is mesmerizing. It was mind-opening to read about the problems of establishing an alarm system (first a triangle, then a bell, and so on). The Firefighter's Prayer on the wall...More

As a volunteer firefighter, I loved this place. I got to see how it use to be to fight a fire. A must for all firefighters or their families.

This is a small museum, but worth the visit. Especially since it is free (donations accepted). Several old trucks / engines and various other old firefighting equipment. We spent about an hour or so looking at the exhibits.
