  • The museum is small but well done. It’s two floor and has an elevator. There are quite a few early fire wagons (trucks). The gentleman working the day I visited was very nice.  more »
  • Great little museum. It's probably the best opportunity to pick some authentic FDNY gear as well. I believe some of that money goes to the 9/11 fund.  more »
  • This museum is very close to Greenwich village so if you visit the"friend's" apartment pop in here too. You can try out the actual fire men' s outfit, see a bit of 9/11 original restored relics. And a...  more »

  • A unique attraction in the big city. I happened to visit the day Santa was rescued from the roof! Two floors of firefighting history provides a very thorough overview in a pretty small space. They also have a very nice banquet room on the 3rd floor for special events. I would highly recommend anyone with an interest in firefighting history visit the museum.
  • An awesome and inexpensive stop for firefighters or those interested in fire history in the City of New York. There is a lot to see in this three story building. Just a few blocks from a train stop, you can walk in and spend a couple hours exploring (if you want to) or a half hour perusing. Tons of history from speaking trumpets, engines, dogs, the halligan bar, and of course 9/11. My wife and I enjoyed it and if you have time and think this might be for you, give it a shot.
  • This museum is very close to Greenwich village so if you visit the"friend's" apartment pop in here too. You can try out the actual fire men' s outfit, see a bit of 9/11 original restored relics. And also you can visit some old fire engines and learn about the New York fire brigade.
  • This was an awesome experience - got to see some old engines and pump and ladder trucks from the past. Learned about the history of the FDNY. Shed some tears at the 9/11 exhibit. From excitement and joy to sorrow and sympathy, you will feel all feelings here, but that is part of what adds to the appeal. It is a complete experience. Being one of NYs bravest is not easy.
  • Love to support our brothers out there saving lives. A small but informative exhibit, with real firemen taking care of the facilities.
