What is there to do?

Nee yaw nee yaw - it's time to visit the hottest attraction in Memphis! Yep, we're talking about The Fire Museum, and it's located in the legendary Fire Engine House No. 1 in Downtown Memphis.

Part of the National Register of Historic Places, kids can step back in time to a turn-of-the-century firehouse, and really feel what it's like to be one of the bravest men and women in the country!

The Fire Museum of Memphis is super fun for kids because it's so hands-on and interactive. Kids can fight the flames of a burning skyscraper from a Snorkel basket (and if you don't know what one of those are, then your adventure should start soon to find out!), as well as test their ability to find an escape route to survive a fire.

Kids can even check out the horse-drawn era of firefighting...from a horse's perspective! it wasn't all roaring fire engines you know!

They can learn all about the history of fires within Memphis, as well as test their ability ot outsmart the transformer-like fire truck in the Arcade Room, and even discover the proud history of the first African-American firefighters in Memphis.

And we haven't even covered everything you can enjoy!

A day at the Fire Museum is a day of fun, of history, and a place where kids can really learn through play. After all - they are kids, and that's what they do best!

Don't miss a visit to the Memorial Wall either - an impressive sculpture dedicated to all the Memphis fire fighters who have lost their lives whilst on duty since 1880. A beautiful tribute to some very brave people indeed.

So grab those fire-fighting helmets kids, and get ready for those sirens because it's time to be the bravest kids on the block at the Fire Museum of Memphis!

Nee yaw nee yaw!
