How to entertain your kids on Sundays : the Geneva Firefighters Museum - FREE admission

If you are looking for a great way to spend a couple of hours with your kids on Sundays, you should  absolutely visit the Geneva Firefighters Museum  Musée du Service d'incendie et de secours , this is fantastic place in the city center - tram stop Palladium, take note about the precise address because the museum is not very visible from  the outside.
The museum if free and it's open only on Wednesdays and on Sundays from 10 a.m. till 12 p.m. and from 1.30 p.m. till 3.30 p.m.,  its hows cars and trucks from all eras,  the oldest date from Eighteenth century. The inside of the building itself is worth a visit with its magnificent wooden structure. Once you arrive you will be welcome by men who were firefighters and are now retired, they will be glad to guide you and you kids through the museum and to answer all questions. Besides car and trucks you can find all accessories equipment and uniforms.
 Do not miss it, it will be an unforgettable experience for your kids , the museum is totally free and you can spend  how much time as you want in it, if you want at the end of the visit you can  leave an offer  for the  firefighters associations. 
Dani's advice 
  1. Note down the precise address , there is almost no visible sign outside the building
  2. Go there at the beginning of opening hours to be alone to explore this beautiful place
  3. Ideally go there with someone speaking French who can translate all the fascinating tales that the old Firefighters guides are willing to tell you.
