Michigan Firehouse Museum

In 2009, when my daughter was 3.5, we visited the Michigan Firehouse Museum in Ypsilanti with her friend, a 4 yr old boy. This review is from then. Hours and admission costs were updated in January 2018.

The kids had fun. They loved ringing all the different types of bells that are in the main display area with the engines. They weren’t too interested in the history of the fire engines yet. They were also disappointed that they couldn’t climb up on the engines.

Upstairs there is a display area of different firefighting pop-culture memorabilia. The kids got a huge kick out of a toy fire engine with the Coca-Cola logo all over it. It may have been made out of cans. There is also a bunk area for them to look at.

There is a play area in the basement and we spent quite a bit of time down there. They had an Elmo firefighters video playing, some coloring pages for the kids, a pedal fire truck, and a few fixed fire engines for them to climb in.
