This a great place to take your kids for a visit. It does not cost anything and the kids enjoy looking at the fire trucks. My grandson saw this and wants to be a fire fighter when he grows up, It is a good place to spend a couple of hours and enjoy the different fire rucks.

If you are a firefighter or just a wanna be, this is the place to go. It is a non-profit museum run by volunteers who refurbish older fire equipment (not just trucks, but there are plenty of those). There are new and old style firefighter bunker jackets, extinguishers, bells, sirens, crests. You name it they probably have one or more... More

We were traveling up to Kingston and we had some spare time. In previous trips I had seen the signs for the museum along the 401, so we decided to stop by the museum and we were very glad we did. It's currently located in a medium-sized building that is jam packed with memorabilia, artifacts, and vintage to modern equipment.... More

Hidden in the little town of Port Hope, this museum has a lot of interesting items in its collection. Don't let the it's outside appearance fool you. It is well kept and worth checking out!

We went there for something to do on a lazy Sunday. It's very close to the beach in Port Hope. They don't have a set entry fee, you can donate what ever amount you want. There is a corner where you can try on some of the fire suits. I wouldn't make a trip specifically to see this place but... More

Here you will find one of the very best displays and exhibits covering all aspects of fire fighting down through the decades from the 1800s ... This important museum opens in the better months from late May through October and charges no admission although a donation would be most gratefully appreciated ... Recently the museum announced it had received a... More

We have toured this exhibit a few times now and enjoyed more each time. The history and equipment of the fire fighters profession comes alive here and is a must to understand the pride and commitment of those who have served or are serving us.

Great time looking at the many fire extinguishers from old to new. The trucks were cool to look at. The staff were very friendly.

I thoroughly enjoyed the informative historical exhibits on firefighting and my grandson was thrilled by the interactive exhibits that allowed him to be like a firefighter himself! Would love to see this attraction get a better location to do justice to the amazing collection of firefighting equipment and history.
