Fire truck lovers will delight at the hands-on Michigan Firehouse Museum in Ypsilanti. 

The Michigan Firehouse Museum is a three level, hands-on museum for firetruck admirers of all ages. On the ground floor guests can hop on a vintage truck and admire many more. Both kids and adults can sit in the body of a firetruck and use lights and sirens while pretending to drive.

On the second floor you’ll find fire prevention memorbilia, vintage firetruck toys, a short video and explore the living quarters of the former fire station. In the basement, there is a children’s play area with puzzles, books, dress up clothes and a Bert & Ernie ride.

The Michigan Firehouse Museum is open Thursdays through Sundays from 12pm to 4pm. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for kids ages 5 to 12. There is no parking lot. But don’t worry! There’s convenient street parking next to the museum’s entrance.
