  • After two days in NYC we were all fascinated by fire engines, so we took advantage of this Museum in order to understand more closely at these fascinating and courageous figures. Located in an old station, the entrance is quite expensive, about $50 for two adults and two children, but the money still need to support a good cause. The exhibition on the ground floor varies from ancient means of rescuers, such a section on 11 September to highlight: a range of jackets and helmets you can wear to feel a real fireman. Upstairs other historical relics from the first helmets used at various badges obtained, plaques and awards. Pity that all means are off-limits: not being able to get on even one of the many items on display has some, disappointed expectations

  • This small, but full of History Museum helps to plunge into fire "life" in New York. A large part of the historical exhibits that will help you understand how look fire before. Also a very interesting and touching exhibition dedicated to the tragedy of 9/11. The Museum is worth a visit for both children and adults.

  • Very nice Museum in a former Firehouse. Combines the beauty of unique pieces that belonged to the past with modern means. Very touching is the 11 September Memorial Hall, which emphasizes the sacrifice of firefighters. It struck me that in this room there are numerous messages of solidarity and packs of kleenex for people who recoils. As always the Americans on certain things are always ahead.

  • Visited yesterday and it was great. As a fireman myself it was wonderful to see how our profession was performed in the past. Keep up the good work.
  • The FDNY's original museum opened as the Fire College Museum in Long Island City in 1934. In 1959 the collection was moved to the spare bay of a working firehouse at 100 Duane Street in Manhattan, where it remained until the Home Insurance Company presented its own extensive collection of fire memorabilia to the city in 1981, making a move to larger space imperative. A new non-profit, The Friends of the New York City Fire Department Collection, was created to raise funds to renovate the former quarters of Engine Company No. 30, a 1904 Beaux-Arts firehouse on Spring Street, and in 1987, the New York City Fire Museum opened to the public. Exhibits in the museum demonstrate the changes in firefighting practices from bucket brigades to carriages to engines. The evolution of the department itself, from volunteer firefighters to municipal fire departments is also covered. The museum also houses a special memorial to the 343 members of the FDNY who lost their lives in the September 11 attacks. This memorial includes artifacts recovered from the World Trade Center site, as well as a monument commemorating each firefighter who made the Supreme Sacrifice.[1] Retired FDNY firefighters are often on hand to educate the public on firefighting history as well as to relate personal anecdotes. The museum is also very active in fire safety and prevention education and has a mock apartment highlighting fire hazards for its kindergarten though 12th-grade programs. The New York City Fire Museum attracts approximately 40,000 visitors a year. Attendance at the museum spiked to 46,000 visitors in 2002 following the September 11th attacks and has since leveled off
  • Cool fire trucks and gear. Touching videos about 9/11/01, so bring tissues.
  • Great compact museum. Moving 9/11 area.
