This is one of the musea which you can easily visit with kids. There are fire trucks, they can dress up like a fireman and in the small gift shop, surely they can find something to be a hero themselves...

Two grandkids and 3 adults had a wonderful visit to the NYC Fire Museum. Lots of old fire equipment, fire jackets and helmets that the kids can wear. Well worth an hour of your time and the kids will enjoy it too!

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
