A lovely novelty in a darling small town on a charming island. What is there not to like? Nearby are cute restaurants and if you walk down Narragansett Avenue you will come to the harbor and a beach. Great for kids!

Go back in time by visiting this museum. The volunteer firefighters for Jamestown are very welcoming and the museum was fun for my daughter to explore. After we looked here, the firefighters showed us the modern working fire engines too. Great place to explore.

A surprisingly wonderful collection of old firefighting equipment in a historically accurate firehouse. Volunteers demonstrated how the old alarm pull boxes worked during our visit

We were a bit disappointed that the museum was not open. It surely would be nice to visit. We took the opportunity to take a few photos though.

This museum, was truly, made from the love and devotion of volunteer firefighters. So, manyvwonderful artifacts and pictures, to be seen. Not to mention the restored antique fire trucks. Anyone, who happens to be hanging around the station, takes delight in showing the museum.

There are not specific hours. I suggest going to the department’s building next door during daylight hours. If a volunteer is available he will open the museum and give a custom tour.
