Museums & Galleries

The New York City Fire Museum is an ode to those at the forefront of the city's safety. Having shifted base a number of times since its inception, the museum now occupies a refurbished firehouse dating back to 1904. The collection on display features steam engines, model fire trucks, cutting edge fire-fighting equipment and gear from the late 18th Century to the present day. The fire related artifacts and memorabilia celebrate the trajectory of the FDNY and honor its heritage. Pay your respects to the 343 firefighters that lost their lives in the 9/11 terror attacks and view objects recovered from Ground Zero. Engage yourself with stories of courage narrated by retired firemen as well as a fire safety education session.
