    Because you deserve more space ... Because it tells the heroes of NY ... Because it helps explain why firefighters are considered heroes and are untouchable. Many things, sometimes seem crowded, but the small museum is a gem that is well worth a visit. The entrance door is still the name of the company that was housed here (Yes, it's a former barracks) ... GO THERE, IT'S WORTH IT!

    The museum has a nice selection of antique fire wagons, and memorabilia. The 9/11 room is special. Inside it, they have the only Scott airpack that I’ve ever seen that ruptured, a unique artifact. Pos...  more »

    Nice museum. I was just at the fire museum today with my 3 children (ages 7 and under). We saw many old fire trucks. We all enjoyed seeing the old fire trucks. The children were not allowed to climb a FIRE truck. We just wish the they would have a fire truck that is designated for the children to climb.

    This is a neat little stop. My company has hosted a few events in the space on the top floor, but the museum itself is little, but interesting. It would make for a nice detour for tourists.

    Great place for children very cheap around $7 if you're a student it's less. 3 floors has a lot of the 9/11 history.

    The Museum is amazing! Great place for a date night. The food and drinks are decent.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
