NYC Museum of Fire Presents: Colonial Firefighting & The American Revolution

January 1 - December 31, 2024 - 10am - 5pm

Celebrate the untold story of a group of volunteers, the colonial-era firefighters, that stood between New York and disaster during years of rampant arson, wars for North America, and the American Revolution. Multimedia, video animations, and 3D models illustrate the major events of the colonial era, including a breathtaking video-animation of the devastating fire in 1776 that destroyed 500 buildings – homes, churches, schools, stores, and factories. Original artworks depict the Wall of Wall Street, the first fire engines, and 1770 New York neighborhoods. A free exhibition booklet will be provided to the first 1,000 attendees to the Museum starting March 15th.
