Fire Engine Museum

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

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.
