The place doesn't have a lot to see; about 5-6 fire engines and some historical placards. That being said, Sherrie, who led the your, was very nice. She helped my son (6) slide down the pole, she gave us info about the old fire trucks...More

My dad is a retired fire captain, so I have an appreciation/respect for the profession of fire fighting. I stop at many stations and any museums when traveling just because. This was a pleasant little surprise of things to do in Jackson. I don't recall...More
