Took my 3, 7 and 10 year old here. We spent about 2 hours here. There were displays for all of us to enjoy. There's a wealth of information for all of us to learn. Kids even had fun interactive displays and play areas to learn from.

The visitor center was small compared to other centers during a 24 day trip, yet a very helpful staff member. The center leads to the museum.My visit didn't last as long as I had hoped, had a second site at 12:00, while the center didn't open till 10:00 on Saturday. Photographed twenty vehicles-five horse drawn & fifteen 1900's fire engines, that range from a 1857 Button & Blade Hand Pump Fire steam engine to a 1969 American La France 900 Series Dominion Pumper. All vehicles are showroom quality. Glass cases have helmets & fire fighting apparatuses for every day fire fighting. Along one wall are the earliest types of firefighting-back to Roman times-Working in Turnout, Gear, Layered For Protection, High Pressure, Fire Fighting Nozzles, Enhanced 911, On Scene Communications & Modern Communications. Each vehicle is behind a three foot tall metal railing with a detailed history of each vehicle. For the children is a stairway to a tunnel slide. A theater shows about a 12 minute video about fire fighting. Plenty of free parking & a small gift hop. Any person with an interest in fire fighting, equipment, vehicles & a history of fire fighting, this museum will not disappoint. Even the children should enjoy a visit. For most visitors at most one hour should enough time, where my visit was a hour & half. A visit is highly recommended. NO large crowds.
