New York City Fire Museum


278 Spring St, New York, 10013

I was taken back to my childhood when I got to visit our New York City Fire Museum. That’s right! I felt like a kid eyeing all those neat historical fire-fighting contraptions from yesteryear. Wish they would’ve allowed me to climb on top of some of their equipment…’but that’s not allowed.

as excerpted from their flier which you’ll find at the museum itself
Since 1987 the New York City Fire Museum has occupied the former quarters of FDNY Engine Co. 30, an historic 1904 firehouse at 278 Spring Street, in the Soho district of Manhattan.

The Museum houses one of the finest collections of fire service memorabilia in the country. Artifacts on exhibit at the museum include fire-related artwork, toys, uniforms, and insurance fire marks. Visitors can discover the exciting story of firefighting in New York City, represented by actual historic fire equipment, ranging from the early leather buckets, through hand pumpers an dhorse drawn streamers, up through motorized vehicles of the 20th century.

In addition to preserving and exhibiting materials related to the history of firefighting, the museum also teaches fire safety through its exhibits and programs. Among other acitivities of the museum are lectures, guided group tours, special weekend events for families, and publication of the newsletter, Housewatch.

So pass on by and take a look! It’ll be worth your while! Really! Have fun!
