    We were the only visitors early Saturday morning right after they opened, so there was no wait or a line. From the outside it is a very large building but once we were inside, I was surprised at how small the museum area actually was. Luckily the fee to enter is small. The contents are very impressive. The sheer amount of antique fire engines that are pristinely restored is enough to knock your socks off. There is firehouse memorabilia and artifacts everywhere the eye can see and beyond. They even have a kids area with themed coloring pages and toys that they can play with. My four year old especially loved playing with the toy fire trucks. The museum also includes a modest gift shop area with reasonably priced souvenirs. You can spend a good couple of hours pouring over each item and reading all the information posted. Out front is a playground and a couple more fire engines that you can climb on for some really cute photo ops.

    Another great little museum. I visited on a Saturday morning right when they opened, honestly got lucky with my timing as they were closing for a private event, but I was able to get an hour in before they closed. Staggering amount of firefighting history in such a compact museum. I appreciate them letting me in without charging and even offering a complimentary ticket for a follow up visit.

    This is a pretty cool firefighters museum I wasn't expecting. There's a very nice collection of fire patches from around the world, it was pretty cool seeing some patches from different areas I've visited. I liked seeing the collection of antique fire apparatus and would say the only one I've seen that was more impressive was in Melbourne, Australia. The fallen firefighter memorial is also worth a visit if to do nothing other than pay your respects for a few minutes.

    I liked it. There is a really cool ticker tape machine that showed where a fire was reported. They can't run the machine for us, but there is a video of it that you can scan a QR code and watch. Very well worth watching. They also have an extensive collection of patches from all over. There is a catalog that lists where the patches are from, so most out-of-towners can find their hometown fire department in this collection. One suggestion: I would like to see more information on the lovely fire engines. It seems like little is said about them.

    Highly recommend! We Loved the tour and experience! Gained some knowledge about early 1900s. There was a variety of table top activities and toys. Nice, simple gift shop. Unknown GEM was the playground outside the entrance. It was surprisingly unexpected and has about 5 shaded picnic tables!! If you need a smaller sized museum with less of a crowd. This is an amazing place! Duration was about 1.5 hours. Decent entry fee. Will come again.
