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.

When I was there, several children were having a great time. What kid doesn't want to be a firefighter? Such big smiles and activity. A great (albeit small) collection of firefighting apparatus displayed throughout. Many hands-on activities for children. Most of the trucks you can't climb on, touch or otherwise handle. There are a couple that kids can get really... More

Many vintage fire trucks, fire apparatus,1800-1900's fire fighting equipment and an area devoted to 9/11 which brought me returned sadness. They allow you to take as many photo's as you like. And I did proudly. Rules are no standing on any fire trucks what so ever. Browsing only.

Visited with 24 firefighters/wives from Lancaster Fire Dept- Lancaster NY. It was a great space...many vintage firetrucks (including our own Protective Hose Company's engine), displays and hands on activities for young and old. A must for anyone in the fire service. We also popped over to the Home on the Hudson for a tour of the facility, which was beautiful,... More

We went to The museum yesterday to break up a rainy weekend. So glad we did! The kids (3 under 5 yrs) had a blast. They learned fire safety and the interactive program was awesome. They even donned scaled down bunker gear and dragged hoses from the trucks to the "fire" and climbed in and out of the trucks. Unforgettable... More

What great place for a family or adults. My granddaughter just loved putting on the firefighter outfit and going in four firetrucks. I could not believe how many fire engines were in the museum. Very small fee a family of four $10.00

Great local museum! Who new that fire equipment was so beautiful and interesting? Kids love to dress in firemans outfits and sit in the trucks, their parents and grandparents will find the displays interesting n ad informative. Great place for a rainy afternoon when you have a houseful of guests that include some ages 3-12

Headed to FASNY on a rainy morning, encouraged by other TripAdvisor reviews, and were not disappointed. Family admission price is extremely reasonable, and the gal at the front desk couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Were with grandkids, ages 6, 3 and 9 months, and all but the baby were entertained by the climb-on trucks, craft activities, videos (especially... More

This is a well organized museum. First off, we headed to the kid friendly zone in the back of the museum. This section had a number of fire fighter related activity for the kids. With two small boys in the group, however, we knew we had to head to the trucks first. There are 4 different trucks for the kids... More

As the daughter and sister of firefighters, I was intrigued by the idea of this museum. We went on a quiet, rainy day and spent 2 hgours enthralled by the amazing collection of apparati - one from 1789 - and lots of hands on interactive activities for the kids!
