  • We loved this museum.Tickets are very cheap, and the museum is 2 flors. They have amazing replicas or originals of the fire departments equipment and things. And a whole room dedicated for 9/11 remembrance. The entire experience was educational and moving and we really walked out of there feeling a lot of different emotions. The staff were also extremely kind and friendly and the atmosphere was quite nice.
  • A truly humbling and breathtaking experience. Being a firefighter myself I am truly honored how this museum displays the first responders equipment and vehicles. Every life lost on that day was remembered here and it was done in the best way possible.
