I am always displeased when a visitor is not happy with their visit to the Museum. While I understand your concerns, it seems from your comments that you were under the impression that this is a children’s museum. We try to make it very clear on the museum’s website and in the Museum’s orientation video that while we have activities... More

The FASNY museum has many different firefighting apparatus on display. Some extremely old dating back to the beginning of man and horse drawn vehicles. Being a firefighter for over 35 years I was extremely interested and amazed at how things were done years ago. Admission is free if you are a FASNY member.

I liked this museum. It was interesting to see the old trucks. But I think it would be boring for most kids. They have to be really interested in fire engines or otherwise they would really be bored. I think firefighters would get the most out of this museum

This is a great museum for families and adults of all ages. It has the history of firefighting beautifully displayed, along with vintage trucks, and firefighting gear. There are a ton of hands on activities for kids and future fire fighters. They have programs for school groups. Lots of safety tips included. Impressive gift shop with books, toys and Lego... More

We have visited several fire fighting/fighter history museums. In short, this has been the best one yet. A large number of types of pieces we've never seen anywhere else, e.g., the 1731 Newsham engine. Lot of great art, history and equipment. Well worth a visit.

The best place ever to see the history of fire engines live in the flesh: all the way back to an early bucket brigade truck!

I was shocked at the workmanship on the old time horse drawn carriage, I wished I had taken a photo. Currier and Ives---nice. (art) History about the horses----how they kept breeding them to make them stronger. Horse shoes--- on cobblestone streets in earlier times. Get to sit in a fire truck---- and go to a fire. (video)--- Need training to... More

We stopped in late in the day to check out the Museum, thinking just a quick visit. Well the museum is quite extensive! Hundreds of fire engines and wagons plus lots of other related "stuff". Very impressive! You can spend a lot time here depending on your level of interest. Very good signage and looked like they had some interactive... More
