Nice collection of fire equipment in an historic building downtown. Great place to visit for both adults and kids. Museum staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. Well worth the nominal admission fee, and a worthwhile stop while in downtown Fort Wayne.

We were here for a special event. The food was great and the room was really interesting upstairs. It is an old building, but the chef is experienced and the food was presented just like a special event!
