No Road Trip Needed: New Bedford Fire Museum

School is out but the kids can still learn and have fun at the same time this summer.  

The New Bedford Fire Museum is located at the Old Station No.4, built in 1867, is a great place to learn about local history. It shows how the fire departments of the city of New Bedford were developed, like the the technology and equipment used to fight fires in the city setting from the beginning on.  Your little guys would LOVE this :)
