A real treat to mostly families, the Memphis Fire Museum offers hands-on exhibits that can be great fun for children.

It is quite interactive for kids, because they can play a fireman, dress up, put out a fire and climb on a fire-truck, so if you're with family in Memphis, than this museum is a must!

Even if you're not with kids, you can still enjoy yourself, because there are so many educational and interesting things about fire-fighting that even a grownup can appreciate.

118 Adams Ave, Memphis, TN 38103, USA
