Music year olds had a blast. They live all the old fire trucks, and other equipment. The helmet collection was a favorite of mine.

The firehouse museum is a nice local-museum place. It's clean and has lots to look at.... Then again, It's small in size and not interactive. Want to see the area historically through the eyes of a firehouse? Go here. Want high action, entertainment and danger?!?...More
