We just happened to stop by the museum while we were checking out the town. Some great history about the Saint John fire fighters. The pictures were great as well as the old fire engine. All around a must see if in Saint John!

Was looking forward to touring but when we arrived the door was locked and no one to be found! Was disappointed because the website said it was open is only reason why I gave it a poor. I probably would of gave it an excellent if I could of actually toured it! 😊

We saw this museum and thought it would be a fun way to spend a few minutes.

The tour guide was very friendly, shadowing us around the space and offering insight into objects we were looking at. She answered our questions were well. Also, we summoned her by ringing the fire bell, which was very fun (though our sleeping baby didn't appreciate it lol).

Some of the artifacts, like the old horse-powered pump wagon and the call boxes were really cool.

My only downside is that the upper level was not "accessible". We had a baby in a stroller, and had to take her out of it to walk upstairs. A ramp or elevator would be highly desirable.

Just a chance to see a little history. This is an old fire station Museum that would be of interest any one who had been a fireman or has an interest in fire trucks. Neat displays and friendly people running tis Museum.

We really enjoyed our visit, and learned a lot! I had not known about the great fire in 1877 until learning it here. The summer student was knowledgable and friendly (but not annoying).

We would have loved to have gone down the pole or seem more period style Fireman clothing.

Bring cash for a donation.

I had looked forward to going to this museum with my fireman husband but to our dismay, the museum was closed. While walking, we noticed an active firehouse around the block and inquired about the museum.
The firefighters there said they open the museum during the summer "for children" but that it had been closed for a couple months.
The tour bus operators were advertising it as a tourist destination.
Disappointed!

This is a small but amazing museum the tour guides are helpful and knowledgeable, they were able to answer all my questions. There is two floors, a old fire truck which they let us sit in! There is also a old hand pump. The stories they tell are fascinating! I would definitely recommend this museum to everyone!

Like many small museums, this one is run by volunteers. If you are interested in the fire service and it's history, you'll enjoy this 1840's fire station complete with equipment and other artifacts. Unfortunately it's only open week days in the summer time.
