Overview

This 25,000 square-foot museum and interactive exhibit/educational playground provides a wealth of information on the history of fire fighting equipment and vehicles, as well as safety and fire prevention programs, assisted by staff dressed as firemen. Adults and children will have plenty to see, touch and hear. Considered one of the finest fire museums in the United States, visitors can view 18 fire trucks from 1857 to 1969, slide down a fire pole, or test one's knowledge, strength and skill at using fire fighting equipment. Located near the Tanger Shopping Outlet Center off Interstate 26, the museum also features a small gift shop and a Charleston Visitor Center information booth. - Natasha Lawrence
