Impressive artifacts, movies & displays of days gone by with personal items donated by families of firefighters, set in an old fire station that has been restored. An amazing time, allow 2 hours as there is 2 floors & lots of kid friendly displays

Great museum with very knowledgeable staff. Drop in and give your support. A lot of effort has gone in to this and loads of interesting memorabilia to spend time on.

Worth while visit for anyone interested in the history of the fdny. Cheap admission and anything bought goes towards the museum. They have retired fire fighters on site who are happy to chat to you

A small museum but packed with information on FDNY. Staffed by friendly people. The museum showcases the old firefighting system and has a memorial on 911 (very touching).

We had a great time looking through the history of fire fighting at the museum. Staff were friendly and helpful. It was nice that it wasn't as busy as most new York attractions.
