Very well thought out museum with lots of fireman suits through the ages. Also some great old pictures of the old Denton Fire Station from the 1890s. They also have a good selection of fire truck toys for children to see.

With a piece of the WTC as a memorial to the 411, it is a quick tear-jerker, but they have amazing historic extinguishers, suits, gear, and more! The firefighters are ready to give a tour of the department if you ask nicely.

An amazing collection of historical fire fighting items that tell the story and history of Denton Firefighting. Grandkids loved it.

A look at some of the equipment used in the past and pictures of various trucks and fires in Denton. This is in a Real fire station so a look at the current trucks is also a possibility if they're not making calls.

Our kids had such a great time and the firefighters were super nice! This was a great way for our young children to learn about the job of a firefighter.

not much to it overall, however there is some interesting stuff to see. You can be through the entire exhibit in less than an hour. Plan other things to do in Denton if this is your reason for coming.

We were wandering around town square and stumbled upon this little museum. There were some great old fire fighter gear and equipment on display. I even got to try on some old fire fighting gear!
