There's remarkable heritage in Harrisburg.
I have to admit, I wasn't sure what to expect when I was approaching the museum. Would it be filled with dusty old uniforms or stacks of old paper logs, the edges curled and yellow? Would it be filled not with artifacts but instead cliches - the handsome, hunky firefighters and their infallible equipment? I wasn't entirely convinced that this would be a good fit for me.
What does it take to keep a small museum thriving? In the case of the Pennsylvania National Fire Museum, you need a little ingenuity, a whole lot of community connections, and an troop of dedicated volunteers, willing to work every day, every week, every month for decades at a time.
Welcome to the latest installment of the "Save, Splurge, Steal" interview series. Getting great value when I travel is always such a fun challenge for me and I love to learn how other people get the best possible experience for their available time and money. I'm asking top travel bloggers to share their expertise and I hope you enjoy their responses as much as I do!
