We had family come down and stay with us so we took them to the museum. We had our three year old grandson with us and he just loved it. I'm a retired firefighter and I loved it.

Went here in September of 2017. Free entrance for firefighters which was nice. The building is aged but other than that it's well worth the stop. Great history and a cool collection of antiques and trucks

Two stories in an old fire station filled with historic fire trucks - even from early 1800s. I didn't even know they had pumper back then. I imagined buckets. Some great photos and a nice souvenir selection.

We finally made it. It was certainly worth the wait. There are two floors with about two dozen fire engines and pumpers dating back to the early 1800's. They are from a number of communities around Nova Scotia. Lots of artifacts and pictures to see....More

This museum was great! As a family of four, it was inexpensive and had tons of stuff for us to see. Staff are there to answer questions if you have any, but they leave you to do your own exploring which was nice.

Very interesting place to visit. We've been to car museums, but have never seen so many historical firetrucks and firefighting equipment in one place. We've seen the old pumpers in movies, but it's not like seeing them in person and trying to imagine what it...More

On paper, I thought this museum would be boring, but it was not. they had old fire engines and pumpers, you could almost see the firefighters working the pump handles. Some of that equipment was really complex. They even had a wooden fire plug.

It was $4, per adult, $3 for senior and $2 for children and I think it was free under a certain age.
