I was skeptical I would enjoy a museum about a fire that happened in the 1890's--but I was surprised how interesting this place really is. First off it is in an old railroad depot that is on the National Registery of Historical Places. The original structure was destroyed by a huge fire that burned hundreds of miles and killed hundreds of people. The building was immediately rebuilt after the fire so this is an authentic example of the original right down to the separate waiting areas for men and women. There's a tiny gift shop and the staff was interesting and friendly. Worth visiting.
