Property Description

There's something for everyone at the Hoboken Fire Department Museum. For kids, the star attraction at the former fire station at 213 Bloomfield St. is the shiny red Ahrens Fox fire engine, circa 1932; this "Cadillac" of fire trucks has been meticulously restored and occasionally stars in civic parades.

For grownups, the Fire Department Museum is a treasure trove of fire gear and memorabilia documenting the evolution of tools and techniques used by Hoboken's bravest in battling fires that spread quickly in a city of connected row houses, working piers and active factories.

Visitors can now drop by the Fire Department Museum any weekend between 12 Noon and 5 pm, thanks to support from the Hoboken Historical Museum. Admission is just $3 for adults, children under 12 admitted free.
