Grand Opening & Maxim Picnic









The Grand Opening of the New England Museum of Firefighting will be on Saturday September 17, 2002 at the Museum’s building located at 27 Leonard Street, in Adams, Massachusetts.

This also will be the day of the Museum’s annual Maxim Picnic. Amid the early fall foliage in the Berkshires, this event will celebrate the official opening of the Museum with an open house, an apparatus muster as well as all the hot dogs and hamburgers you can eat. Admission to the Maxim Picnic is free to Museum members and their families. Follow the Museum on Facebook for more details about the Maxim Picnic and the Museum’s Grand Opening.
