Very informative place with regards to the Fire Department, past and present. It is a good must-visit for everyone, both young and old, for locals and tourists!! There is even a real life vintage fire truck inside the premise, for one to climb on board for photo taking. There are plenty of souvenirs on sale at the premise too.
The place is too small with a lot of stuff to display, could be good for local to visit to see the history of the firefight in Singapore also story of a big fire, but for foreigner you can skip this place unless you have time to spare.
