I never expected to see such a wonderful display of firefighting equipment and memorabilia presented in such a professional manner. For adults, the explanations of the equipment is wonderful - and the museum has many programs for children. When we entered, the first hall was full of fire trucks (most made by American LaFrance) - amd I thought that must... More

I was brought up in Hudson, lived a very short distance from the Museum. The grounds have been updated beautifully.

I went here with my husband and two children; a 5 year old and a 2 year old. My 2 year old is very rambunctious and was not well received by the snotty lady who oversees the museum. The place is incredible and we probably would have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves if it were not for this woman following us around... More

We went here just to do something we thought would be kind of quirky and out of the way, expecting it to be a place we might spend 10 minutes or so becuase it is hyped as something for kids, but WOW were we surprised. We spent 2 hours here and had to leave for an appointment, but we could... More

I am the curator for a fire museum in Wellington, New Zealand and had heard from local New Yorkers that I should make the time to visit the FASNY Museum of Firefighting. I have traveled the world visiting other museums and fire collections and would have to say this is one of the greatest collections I have come across. I... More

Fascinating for kids and adults -- we spent three hours and there was more to see. The historical write-ups are excellent -- back to the Romans -- and George Washington's chewing out of some "tourists" was priceless.

When I started in the fire service there was a saying "back when men were men" this place will take you to that time. My wife and I brought our 5 year old grandson here on Labor Day weekend, he didn't want to leave number one; number two he wants to go back already. My wife saw for the first... More

Having been severely burned in a fire in 2003, I am alway very interested in the evolution of firefighting techniques. This is a good little museum.
