Displays illustrate the evolution of firefighting from the bucket brigades of Peter Stuyvesant's New Amsterdam through the colorful history of volunteer firefighters to modern firefighting techniques and equipment. The Museum also houses a special memorial to the 343 members of the FDNY who made the Supreme Sacrifice on 9/11 and features a number of firefighting artifacts recovered from the World Trade Center site. A video room and a mock apartment with an artificial smoke machine and black-lighted fire hazards are used in the museum's fire education program for school children ages K through 12.

It is a cute museum, very interesting from an adult perspective. My 3 year old found some parts entertaining (the interactive hazards), but for some others he is still too little. I will take him again in the future though.
Really cool little museum. My three-year-old was into it (and so was I).
My toddler loved it!
I think it is great for older ones. I love it. It would be great with a modern fire truck to explore.
He had fun but it is very small. The fire safety activities were a lot of fun, but I think the rest of the history of the fire department was lost on him. Might revisit during future school years because it is an amazing history.
Hmmm... looks like there are no activities listed for today
Check out a different day to join in on the fun!
