A one of a kind, charming and detailed exhibit. Wonderful artifacts with well written information. Fun activities for kids. Cool and shady. Nice place for a visit and a lunch picnic out front on the tables. Loved the huge fire trucks!!! Will come back again.

Interesting little museum to visit. Lots of fire fighting memorabilia to look at. Small gift shop with cute items. Check the hours before you go as we went on a Wednesday and they were closed.

Welcoming staff and volunteers, excellent displays and fun things for the kids and adults to try. The mix of information and hands on activities is just right. We learned things about the history of the fire service which were fascinating.

Hey! This place is great! It's a terrific place to bring the kids to see lots of old firefighting artifacts and some great old fire trucks! You can even adopt an old fire hydrant!
