We love the Firefighters Museum. The size it perfect for me to do solo with the children. The kids can run around and burn some energy while having fun. Mine love putting on the costumes and climbing on the fire trucks.

A must visit for children of all ages. We took our two grandchildren there, ages four and seven, and it was hard tio decide who enjoyed the visit more. Check with your local library and see if they have free passes for you to borrow.

Took the kids they loved it - climbing fire engines, seeing all the exhibits hands on - the adults liked it too.
