New York City Fire Museum
If you ever wanted to be a firefighter, then you will be delighted when visiting the New York City Fire Museum. It is situated in a firehouse built at the turn of the century and is filled with everything from horse-drawn firefighting equipment and the "jaws of life" to model fire trucks. A great way to learn how the fire fighting department works and to get hands-on information about equipment they use, the museum is very interactive and informative. After a visit to the museum, do head to the shop where one can purchase memorabilia to take home. Guided tours are available by advanced appointment only.
We, from Denmark, went to the museum last week. First we visited Ground Zero and then the museum. At the museum we talked to a retired firefighter who spent a lot of time to tell us (2 persons) about the history of NYFD and september 11 2001. It was a VERY FINE visit. Never forget September 11. /Michael, Denmark
