2015 Best Birthday-Party Location, Kids

Boston Fire Museum

This museum and working firehouse has become a hot tot birthday spot, and for good reason: Festivities begin on the spacious second floor, where kids can burn excess energy, then move to an exhibit hall, where they can climb, “steer,” ring bells, and wind sirens on old-time engines.
