About The Landmark

The New York City Fire Museum in Manhattan’s Hudson Square District (or West SoHo area) is housed in a 1904 Beaux Arts former firehouse. Inside, you will find one of nation’s most important collection of fire-related art and artifacts from the late 18th century to today.

There is also a gallery honoring 343 fire department members who lost their lives on September 11th. The exhibition is expanding to honor those who continue to die from 9/11 related illnesses.

The mission is to collect, preserve and present the history and cultural heritage of the fire service of New York and to provide fire prevention and safety education to the public, especially children. The museum regularly hosts school groups and special events.
