There sure were. The story is so interesting, the fire engines in pristine condition, and the docents a wealth of information. We loved the pink and blue color scheme.

A definite stop when visiting New Bern. It was not crowded when we were there and had a wonderful guided tour of the firehouse.

If you are interested in the progression of Fire trucks from the civil war era through the early 1940's this museum has a collection that is authentic and interesting. I would imagine young boys would be fascinated and the docent is knowledgeable and entertaining. Tour...More

We visited one sweltering hot afternoon to get into the air conditioning! What a treat. The docents are very knowledgeable and can give you lots of background information to share.

This is a small museum, but they are working on expanding. Its very inexpensive to go to and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The museum is located near other cute attractions as well.

Normally the museum is open Mon thru Sat 10 am to 4 pm. Adult admission is $ 7, students are $4 and under 6 years is free. I do not know if they are open Thanksgiving Day, but I would think they would not be open.
