Memphis Fire Museum-- A Super Fun Time!!

We took a day off to get Deacan's long form birth certificate (needed for Belize). We decided to check out the Fire Museum while we were downtown with this precious time off. I am so glad we did!! The Fire Museum is an undisclosed place of fun for kids of ages (including me).. It is a shame it is not more heard of... Anyhow, here are some photos we snapped along the way: We got to play an interactive game in which you hold a hose and put out a virtual fire on a screen. The player is lifted by crane to play. Deacan's favorite part was the talking horse at the end.. Mommy was amazed at the fact in the olden days horses came to the rescue lugging fire equipment. It is interesting to think of a time before fire trucks when we counted on the equestrian to relinquish our fires. On the way out we happened to read the metal sign on the building. The posting dedicated the Fire Museum sign to Jerome Hanover, which is Deacan's Uncle Jerry!! How cool is that!?! God bless Jerry for putting money into a facility that is not as popular as it should be. At the end of the day, we had so much fun at the Fire Museum of Memphis. I am putting it on the list of "must return" places.. :)


  1. How have I missed such a cool place? Are y'all going to Belize? Is it a mission trip? That will make a really good post.

  2. We went to Belize on our holiday cruise last year.. Yes, you have got to take Seth to the Fire Museum! Admission is buy one get one free on Tuesdays. :)

  3. I always equate Belize with mission trips, and I completely forgot that that's where you went on the cruise. Here I was thinking y'all were about to leave the country again.
