  • This is a great museum run by volunteers. A great place to bring the kids and for adults to learn about the history of the New Bedford Fire Depart. They have summer hours only but will open the doors....  more

  • This fire museum is very interesting. It is an old firehouse managed by a retired firefighter.. They have many interesting ancient firetrucks and newer ones to climb on. There is a small fire pole....  more

  • This place was awesome, a great place for any firefighter or fire buff who loves fire service history. Also very hands on for kids to make it a great trip for a family as well. A great staff on hand will be glad to help you out, had 7 retired rigs dating from 1800's-1970's. I highly suggest this if your plan on visiting New Bedford or are just driving through. Admission was $3.00. Hours of Operation: Mon-Saturday 9am-4pm until Labor Day. Winter is by appointment only.
  • Phenomenal experience. The guy working there showed us the engine he worked on from the 1950s. The kids loved the fire pole and sitting in the trucks.
