New York City Fire Museum
New York, NY 10013
Village Voice's Description
If you are interested in outdated topographical maps of the city or reading a brief history of New York water, then this little patriotic preservation of fireman accessories is a must-see. The highlight is a taxidermied rescue dog who received a diploma of honor in 1936. And naturally there is an impressive homage to 9-11 and its aftermath.
Hours: Tue-Sat 10am-5pm, Sun 10am-4pm
Tips from foursquare
Come inside & see artifacts from FDNY’s history, including items from the bucket brigade, horse-drawn apparatus & uniforms. Be sure to check out the Museum’s 9/11 memorial & items from the WTC site.
The collection follows the NYC fire service from the time of New Amsterdam. Highlights include artifacts from Ground Zero, a 9/11 memorial and an educational interactive fire simulation room.
Ehh. Not much to do.
Wonderful historical exhibits. Touching 9/11 commemoration. Nice interactive safety "escape" for kids.
The 9/11 testimony has to be seen. The rest of the museum is quite small, only with old stuff. Deceptive.
