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.

Amazing place near historic Hudson, the Museum was established in 1925. Very unique cars. Great place to bring children of various ages. They have a lot of activity stations for kids and also four real firetrucks for them to explore and play.
