Located in the former quarters of the FDNY’s Engine Company No. 30, a renovated 1904 firehouse at 278 Spring Street between Varick and Hudson Streets, the NYC Fire Museum is hard to miss. In beautiful SoHo, it offers on three floors everything you need to know about the history and present about the FDNY.

Expect to see everything from fire-related art, artifacts and their original gear to apparatus from the late 18th century to the present which will blow your mind. It’s a great place to take your kids but also for you to learn more about the FDNY.

NYC Fire Museum for Kids

They have special events for the little ones, where the kids learn how the FDNY operates during a fire in a building. Get ready, because there will be (real) smoke/fog to stage a real fire situation. Our kids were amazed by it.
