A block away from the Boston Children’s Museum, this small museum housed in a former firehouse displays artifacts from New England firehouses, metal toys, and amazing antique fire trucks. There’s a very cool Ephraim Thayer Pumper, a vehicle constructed by Paul Revere in 1793. The volunteers are friendly and give out plastic fire hats to young visitors.
