Well maintained collection of fire trucks and other equipment going back over a hundred years. Fascinating explanations of the techniques and technology used over time. Allow about an hour to explore the three floors of this museum.

Tons of fire truck/firemen memorabilia that was such fun to see. Very sell maintained and inexpensive to tour. Lots of history in there. Takes about an hour to tour. Well worth it.
