  • Such an enjoyable visit here, highly recommend! Fantastic to see the evolution of fire fighting equipment and vehicles. Perfect if you have family or friends visiting and want to do something out of the ordinary!
  • So much fire history under one roof, great displays and lots of information. It is very affordable and worth checking out. It is self guided tour which is nice so you can go at your own pace.
