My wife and I discovered this wonderful museum on a Sunday morning while touring Hudson, on our way to Olana. We arrived at opening and were the only guests at that early hour. The museum is large. You need well over an hour to navigate both floors without stopping to read and review all exhibits; otherwise allocate a few hours. You are shown a brief movie upon your entrance about the museum's history and directions for your self tour. We enjoyed engaging with a few employees, learning more about the museum as we toured. There are numerous well preserved artifacts, engines, and displays throughout the clean and well maintained museum. We were pleased to see that this museum caters to school children, as class tours and educational programs are available. We also enjoyed seeing the Christmas displays on numerous engines, alerting children to the hazards of fire during the holidays; guidance is offered by Penny the Penguin and Mittens the Kitten to name a few. Of course on your way out there is a well represented gift store.

I have been a firefighter since I was 16 and have been on a number of departments including a few all volunteer in NY. The museum is well done and fun for kids.

Headed down to Hudson, New York which doesn’t have much but it’s got the firefighter museum which is a large building with some cool things to see

We really enjoyed it. Some very old fire fighting equipment that we've never seen before. Only problem is that there's no food or drink available.

We made a side trip to the FASNY Firefighting Museum because s family member is interested in firefighting. This museum has something for everyone, hands on for the little kids in the play areas, fire house room for the bigger kids and kids of all ages are able to climb into some of the trucks to get a feel for driving them. For the history buff there are collections of equipment going all the way back to the 1600s. We thought we would just be looking at a bunch of fire trucks but were pleasantly surprised by the variety of exhibits. This was well worth the visit.
