A fantastic showcase of historic firetrucks. One can only imagine living in a time when the courageous firefighters fought fires with the equipment displayed at the museum.

This Museum is really well thought out. As with all Museums, the docents and volunteers make it what it is, without them it would be lacking. Schools do visit but every child (and adult) that comes through gets the opportunity to learn about fire safety. They get to see the fire department trucks and equipment up close. There are interactive exhibits such as a (real) house with fire violations. The kids get the chance to see what is safe and what is not. Very nice visit.

Great for kids and adults. Especially relevant after 911. Good for children of all ages. Even jaded teenagers find it interesting.

a small but interesting museum, with a nice collection of vintage fire engines. there is also a collection of toy fire trucks and other fire-fighter related objects. the little ones will enjoy it because they can dress up as a real fire-fighter, and sit in some of the engines. there is an exhibit of fire safety that will be interesting to grade school children. there is also a very touching 9/11 memorial for the long island fire-fighters who lost their lives that day. your visit will probably be under an hour, unless you can't get the kids off the fire trucks!

The Firefighter's Museum and Education Center is just a small collection of firefighting equipment located within the Cradle of Avation building. There is a separate entrance fee.
