Being that my dad, grandfather and myself are firefighters this was definitely a very interesting museum to visit. A lot of history from fires that have taken place in Nova Scotia and old trucks/steamers dating back to the 1800's. One of the best museums I've seen yet!

On paper, I thought this museum would be boring, but it was not. they had old fire engines and pumpers, you could almost see the firefighters working the pump handles. Some of that equipment was really complex. They even had a wooden fire plug.

We really enjoyed our visit to the firefighter's museum. I thought that they squeezed a lot into a small space. I especially liked the old steam engines they used in the late 1800s to pump water.
