North Charleston Fire Museum

Fire museum with a fire truck simulator, fire-truck-themed indoor playground, etc.

[Karen, 10/25/2016]

This was formerly the American LaFrance Fire Museum in North Carolina before it moved here. It's more slick and general-audience-focused than most fire museums, and displays its gaudy old trucks with dramatic lighting, like elegant vintage cars.
