Took this place for granted until we had a 3 year old visit. So special! Great exhibits. Interactive displays. Super kid friendly but also instructive and even beautiful. As cool in a retro sort of way as anything on Warren St.

A must see!...The History alone and being able to see the way fires were fought with the most awesome preservation of the fire engines and all the artifacts from years past was just mind blowing!
