The New York City Fire Museum is the official FDNY museum. Occupying a Beaux Arts fire extinguisher that was renovated in 278 Spring Street on Hudson Square, west of SoHo, this museum is home to a famous collection of art and fire-related artifacts from the 18th century to the present including fire engines pumped with hands, horse-drawn vehicles, early motorized equipment and fire fighting equipment and equipment. In a museum there must be many items of value whether in terms of history or price. Of course, the items inside the fire department are also the same. Of the many vehicles and equipment available, we can also study the history of firefighters, especially in New York City. This is great for children where we can teach them about firefighters starting from the tools used to how firefighters work in putting out fires from time to time.
Here are some experiences from people who have visited this fire fighting museum. You can make a review of the following experience as a reference if you are going to travel to a new and never visited place. History of fire fighting – I have a weak point for history. Hydrants for wood water pipes and machines are operated by 48 people and wow! I cried at the warning for the 9/11 fire department. Luckily there was a tissue near the door. Unfortunately, there is no fire department there.
Great view, lots of history. I recommend this for all ages. If you enjoy history, you will love this place. We went as a family (12 year old grandson). Short but sweet. Stumbled in the museum on the way to the 9/11 commemoration while wondering around downtown Manhattan. There are a number of different equipment that have been used for years in New York. The building is a nice old fire house. With only being on the 2nd floor it didn’t take long to walk but for $ 10 it passed a pretty pleasant time. Worth a visit if in the area, I’m not sure we’ll go out of our way to visit.
Interesting to visit this Fire Museum. We stumbled across the New York Fire Museum and decided to visit. A very friendly girl was at the table and welcomed us. The museum consists of two floors with exhibits from very old to 9/11. Overall, we feel interesting and happy to have supported NYFD. Make sure you put it on your travel list!
