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.
