Visit to the Hoboken Fire Department Museum

Grades: all, 45-60 minutes

There’s something for everyone at the Hoboken Fire Department Museum, 213 Bloomfield Street. Young Museum visitors will experience an interactive Storytime program, and get a boost into the driver’s seat of the shiny red Ahrens Fox fire engine, circa 1932. This “Cadillac” of fire trucks has been meticulously restored and occasionally stars in civic parades. Older Museum visitors will engage in an interactive scavenger hunt, and become immersed in the treasure trove of fire gear and memorabilia documenting the evolution of tools and techniques used by Hoboken’s bravest.
