This is in a barn behind the Trolley Museum. The apparatus is dusty and the building could use a good update. The trucks themselves are fascinating

This is hidden behind the CT Trolley Museum. It showcases old firetrucks with equipment. Unfortunately, you cannot touch anything, great place to visit if you are at the Trolley Museum.

Admission to this museum is included with admission to the Trolley museum. It is a cute little exhibit. It is small but packed full of vintage fire engines and memorabilia.

Way off the beaten path is a gem of vintage firetrucks. Hidden behind the trolley museum is a trove of equipment. Cool story boards. Easy access and ample parking.

One building houses old fire trucks, for viewing, along with 3 buses. There are placards to read regarding the history of each. It's self guided, and no one was on hand to answer questions. I enjoyed seeing the old trucks, but it just looks like...More

At the same location of the CT Trolley Museum, but in separated building, this little warehouse stores a great amount of antique fire trucks and memorabilia. Although it was open, they were doing some renovations to make room for more displays.

The Connecticut Fire Museum is right behind the Trolley Museum and is covered in the same ticket price. The Trolley Museum was unfortunately disappointing, but I liked this one much better. Still, there were some issues that need fixing. The good news is that the...More
