The museum is located on the third floor of the public safety building on North Main Street. Lots of fire equipment, pictures and memorabilia of the Harrisonburg Fire Department. Loved seeing the old photos of downtown. A must see, especially for locals.

This was a fun little museum. I think we would have appreciated it more as a local because they had a lot of neat artifacts and pictures from the fire stations in the area. It was free, unique, and the staff was very friendly.

We tried to fit in some things for the little ones. This was a great stop. The staff was so nice and went the extra mile giving our children goody bags to take home.
