Took this place for granted until we had a 3 year old visit. So special! Great exhibits. Interactive displays. Super kid friendly but also instructive and even beautiful. As cool in a retro sort of way as anything on Warren St.

A must see!...The History alone and being able to see the way fires were fought with the most awesome preservation of the fire engines and all the artifacts from years past was just mind blowing!

I have been a firefighter since I was 16 and have been on a number of departments including a few all volunteer in NY. The museum is well done and fun for kids.

Headed down to Hudson, New York which doesn’t have much but it’s got the firefighter museum which is a large building with some cool things to see

We really enjoyed it. Some very old fire fighting equipment that we've never seen before. Only problem is that there's no food or drink available.
