A small but cute museum for firefighting-obsessed kids!

The Boston Fire Museum is a wonderful small museum located in Boston's Fort Point neighborhood – and it's free. Alongside the many historical items on display and scenes of firefighters in action, there's a also a firetruck for kids to climb on and in. Trust us, little kids cannot get enough!

For kids obssessed with firefighters, parents will be happy to know the museum also hosts birthday parties (see website for details).

The Head of Accounting and Boston Ambassador, Jenny has been living in Boston for almost 10 years. Before Boston, she lived in Washington, DC for 8 years, and previous to that grew up on Long Island, NY. Along the way, she spent a few months in Amsterdam with her family biking all around and exploring that beautiful city! Jenny has always enjoyed being active - from organized sports to jogging, and of course, being in the garden as much as possible when the weather is cooperative. She tries to include her children in all of her active hobbies. With two toddler boys, ages 3 and 5, she and her husband spend their time discovering new places and things to do in the New England area. Spending time outdoors in all types of weather and encouraging her children to love all seasons is very important to her - and so is helping and encouraging others to do the same. Jenny and her family love spending time at the beach, traveling, taking walks and hikes, and of course, finding new playgrounds!
