- Stop, drop, and roll into the Charlotte Mecklenburg Fire Museum and Education Center. Located within Charlotte's historic Fourth Ward, on the site of the city's historic #4 firehouse from 1924, the museum is devoted to fire education and safety. Its flagship attraction is a completely refurbished early 20th-century horse-drawn pumper, but visitors love the rest of the extensive collection of fire-fighting memorabilia as well. News clippings help tell the story, and a number of firefighter memorials might bring a tear to your eye. A well-stocked gift shop rounds out this memorable and community-oriented experience.
