This place is mainly a souvenir shop for FDNY/EMT merchandise. Has some cool displays and a truck to sit in with some gear but otherwise nothing to see. The staff and clerks are quite helpful and I did find what I came for: an FDNY...More

Without a guide, this place was mainly a fire truck on which kids (and adults, if you wanted) could climb, and a gift shop. There were fire fighter paraphernalia and fire company badges on the wall, some pamphlets on safety, in stands, and some room...More

Absolutely loved it. They have the front section of a pump fire truck. They would have spent all day playing. It's very small and didn't get to see much more than the truck. I would like to go back in on my own to look...More

A helpful and fascinating guided visit which helps understand the important job of fire workers, enriched by videos and simulation of an escape from fire. Worth the money you pay and a small shop inside
