  • I took my 7 year old son this weekend to visit the museum. Really liked all the exhibits and 9/11 memorial. When i signed up, I was anticipating some firefighters being there. Having someone doing som...  more »

  • The Museum tells the story of one of the most traditional corporations in the world, with artifacts and antique vehicles. Special mention for the tribute to firefighters killed on Sept. 11.

  • 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.
  • Great place and educational as well. it teaches you about the history and practicalities of fire safety in a really entertaining way.
  • 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.
