7. Fire Museum of Greater Chicago
Fire departments and firefighters are often the unsung heroes of a local community. The problem is they tend to have traditions that seemingly fade away as times or even chiefs change. However, the Fire Museum of Greater Chicago preserves those traditions with the exhibits they have for the Chicago department and the surrounding departments as well.
